Jun 27 '20 at 0:49 comment added Paul Draper @zibadawatimmy, wow, well yeah by that standard literally everything affects national commercial productivity. Near omnipotence.
Jun 20 '20 at 12:35 comment added zibadawa timmy @Kevin I forget the specifics (though I've spelled them out in some other answer of mine here, I'm pretty sure), but the requirement has to be both directly relevant to the goal of the funding, and the funding cannot be coercive (e.g. so significant that a state essentially cannot be expected to turn it down). There's a third condition I forget (I think it's just "otherwise constitutional"), but the "non-coercive" bit is the fudge factor that is only being worked out as cases get decided.

Jun 19 '20 at 20:51 comment added Kevin @Barmar: Yes in general, but SCOTUS has limited this strategy to some extent in NFIB v. Sebelius (no kicking states out of Medicaid if they don't want to expand it). I'm not sure how that case generalizes, however.
Jun 19 '20 at 17:21 comment added Barmar Don't they also get lots of power by putting conditions on federal subsidies? A state has to enact laws consistent with federal policy to be eligible for this money.

Jun 19 '20 at 7:12 comment added zibadawa timmy The middle two very obviously so. The latter because quality and availability of education has a direct relation to (national) commercial productivity and demand. Police reform probably for the same reason. The modern commerce clause is very powerful, if for no other reason than that modern commerce is nigh omnipresent, multi-state, and multi-national, though it's been pared down a little bit recently. Still one of the most powerful clauses available, though.

Jun 19 '20 at 6:32 comment added Paul Draper @zibadawatimmy Police reform, min wage, medical insurance, and education are commerce clause?
Jun 19 '20 at 6:18 comment added zibadawa timmy This is really more of a commerce clause question in disguise, as that's where the federal government gets its authority on most of these matters.
