California Common Sense is a non-partisan non-profit dedicated to opening government to the public, developing data-driven policy analysis, and educating citizens about how their governments work.
Most recently, CACS was widely cited for its report that examined and succinctly presented Stockton’s decade of budgetary decisions prior to its bankruptcy declaration in June 2012. As other California cities are nearing and declaring bankruptcy, that analysis is serving as a basis for scrutiny of red flags in other municipalities. CACS further made an impact when it revealed that the high speed rail project could cost California $203 billion, far more than the $68 billion projection frequently cited by the State.
California Common Sense, with Autumn Carter as its executive director, has been featured in news outlets such as Bloomberg, Reuters, Fox Business Network, ABC, NBC, CBS, Huffington Post, LA Times, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News, Sacramento Bee, San Diego Union Tribune, and KQED.
