Common Sense in Government (CSG) is a nonpartisan political advocacy organization based in Michigan. It was formed in 2010 by Wendy Day, a Tea Party activist and leader. CSG also calls itself Make Lansing Listen in reference to the fact that the Michigan State Legislature meets in Lansing, Michigan.

Legislative rankings

CSG issued a legislative scorecard in July 2010 that ranks each member of the Michigan State Senate and Michigan House of Representatives based on how they voted on seven bills that came up for a vote in the state legislature in the 2009-2010 term. The seven bills, and how a legislator voted on them, were chosen based on the insight that CSG thinks these votes give about the extent to which an individual legislator votes in accordance with what CSG calls "the limited government, free market principles that Michigan needs to get back on the right track."[1]
