Gov. Andrew Cuomo expects the Assembly to take up the women’s agenda as individual pieces of legislation calling it “absurd” and “unimaginable” if they didn’t.

The governor called in to Susan Arbetter’s Capital Pressroom this morning and nudged the Democratic-led chamber and Speaker Sheldon Silver to re-pass the agenda in order to match what’s expected to be approved in the coalition-controlled Senate earlier this morning.

At issue is the morass of legislative procedure: The Assembly on Thursday approved an omnibus package of the women’s agenda, including the abortion component. The Senate is not expected to pass the abortion bill let alone take a vote, but will pass separate pieces broken out of the agenda by Cuomo himself earlier this week.

“I can’t believe the Assembly would say we’re not going to allow pay equity to be the law because we’re upset with the protocol,” Cuomo said.

Earlier this morning sources told Capital Tonight that pressure was being brought on Silver to pass the bills individually. Silver argues the package was negotiated as a complete bill, and breaking them into separate pieces would undermine those negotiations.

But the governor seemed to want to cast it as a intra-legislative feud.

“The Assembly grumbles they have to take an action because of the Senate and the Senate always grumbles when they have to do something because of the Assembly,” Cuomo said.

Still, Cuomo was happy to suggest that passing nine out of 10 would be a success, even if the abortion measure fails.

“We’ve reframed victory,” Cuomo said. “The victory is all 10. But these nine are historic accomplishments.”

Republicans in the Senate are treating abortion as a “party vote” Cuomo said, unlike same-sex marriage.

Of course, one could suggest that Cuomo is treating this differently from the marriage debate when he marshaled the votes in a careful, weeks-long negotiation before pushing for a vote at the right time.

“I’ll go out on a limb for you that all the Democrats save one will support all 10 planks of women’s equality,” Cuomo said.

He was referring to Sen. Ruben Diaz, a socially conservative Bronx Democrat.

Diaz “didn’t support marriage and, is, well, you know,” Cuomo trailed off.
