The California Center for Public Policy was founded in 2010 by Dr. Lanny Ebenstein, a lecturer in economics at the University of California-Santa Barbara. According to their website, the California Center for Public Policy "is a nonprofit organization dedicated to nonpartisan public dialogue and research in a variety of areas of public policy. These include public employee compensation, education, energy, immigration and economic issues."[1] The purpose of the Center is to identify workable policy solutions to societal issues.

Ebenstein founded the group to support various changes to California's labor laws. He says, "Basically, the situation in California now is so significant, with respect to the budget deficits so many government agencies face, that the right solution to confronting these financial difficulties is to end public sector collective bargaining."[2]

Ballot measures

Initiatives supported by the group include the "End Collective Bargaining by Public Employee Unions Act" (2012).
