About "States Counterplan"
AFF Plan has the federal government somehow fiat changes in policies owned by the States. This is a generic counterplan to simply have the States do the AFF plan instead. It allows the NEG to still deny the resolution because of 1 word that the NEG opposes: “Federal.” Yes, we can substantially change a transportation policy, but not a federal policy. It forces the AFF to justify why the federal government doing it is better than the states doing it. Some policies aren’t even under the jurisdiction of the federal government and would simply fail if the federal government voted to do them, so for those, the States Counterplan is the only thing that can solve.
Strategy Notes: If the AFF plan just fiats that states must change their local laws, like Blood Alcohol Content or DMV offices, then all the arguments in this brief will apply. If the AFF coerces the States by threatening to take away their federal highway funding, then the AFFIRMATIVE SOLVENCY FAILURE and Disadvantage 3 don’t apply, but all the rest does.
