CSE, founded in 1984, has become a particularly vocal and political group under the chairmanship of C. Boyden Gray, a Washington lawyer who served as President George Bush’s White House counsel. Modeling itself on grass-roots groups such as the Christian Coalition and Ralph Nader’s activist organizations, CSE has inserted itself into a number of fights with the Clinton administration and become an active force in state politics on issues from tort reform to labor.

Dan Morgan – Think Tanks: Corporations’ Quiet Weapon – The Washington Post – 29/01/2000 – Washington Post Staff Writer – http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=article&node=&contentId=A46598-2000Jan28
“Along with those earmarked contributions, from companies such as Exxon Corp. and Hertz Corp., the organization received more than $1 million from Philip Morris Cos. at a time when CSE was opposing cigarette taxes. Phone company US West Inc. gave $1 million as CSE pushed deregulation that would let US West offer long-distance service. The documents, obtained by The Washington Post, provide a rare look at think tanks’ often hidden role as a weapon in the modern corporate political arsenal … the largest supporter of Cato’s study of Social Security privatization is the U.S. insurance company AIG, which manages privatized retirement systems abroad and stands to benefit if–as Cato is recommending–such an option is put in place here. But other groups, including CSE, use donations for specific projects without making public the names of their donors–raising questions even among some of their fellow think tanks. “A nonprofit which is doing work for a very clear interest ought to reveal that,” said Urban Institute President William Gorham.”
