The College Public Forum Debate League (CPFL) releases two topics each season, typically one domesetic and one international. The Fall topic is used for tournaments in October, November, and December. The Spring topic is used for tournaments in February, March, and the National Championship in April. Resolutions and starter packets are generally published one to two months in advance.
Resolved: Nations should adopt a carbon tax
