Areas of Focus & Activities

  • CAI will foster a national discussion around the themes in the book "Comeback America", with an emphasis on various specific policy, operational and political reforms to put government on a more prudent, sustainable and accountable fiscal path. The organization’s primary focus will be federal fiscal issues; however, it will also highlight the larger national fiscal challenge and will engage in selected state and local reform initiatives (e.g. pensions, retiree healthcare, tax systems) and in certain jurisdictions (e.g. Connecticut and Bridgeport).
     
  • CAI will engage in various online, on-air, publication and other communication activities, participate in various town hall forums and other public events regarding fiscal matters, and assist key policymakers in their efforts to examine and build support for specific policy reforms to help ensure greater fiscal sustainability.
     
  • All activities will be non-partisan in nature and will be designed to make government more future focused, results oriented, successful, efficient, equitable and sustainable. This includes steps designed to transform government to increase transparency and accountability in connection with key areas of ineffectiveness, inequity and fiscal irresponsibility.
