The rule comes in to effect next year affect means to have an effect or influence on some thing
effect means force in the given example
However effect can also be used as a verb too example, the architect has effected a number of changes in the plan. here effect means bring about or cause
In the sentence affect is the right answer ,because .affect is a verb and effect is a noun .
