Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said she remains hopeful that closely watched measures such as the public financing of political campaigns and the 10-point women’s agenda are approved in the chamber, but acknowledged that at this point it appears unlikely they will.

“We’re not controlling the agenda,” Stewart-Cousins, a Yonkers Democrat, said on The Capitol Pressroom on Wednesday. “That is the job of the Republicans and the IDC. There are things that still need to be done.”

At issue now is Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s newly avowed support for a Democratic takeover of the state Senate, which would effectively end the governing coalition of Republicans and five independent Democrats.

In addition to supporting a Democratic Senate, Cuomo told the Working Families Party he would back a minimum wage increase plan for local communities, the public financing of political campaigns and the Dream Act, which would provide tuition assistance to undocumented immigrants.

Senate Democrats on Monday held a news conference to push for support of the minimum wage hike as well.

In addition to those high-profile bills, there is still an effort underway to approve the medicinal use of marijuana as well as combat heroin addiction statewide. At the same time, a host of local-control bills are still on the Senate’s docket.

Senate GOP Leader Dean Skelos told reporters that he, too, was doubtful anything of significance could still be accomplished now that the political season of campaigning has started, albeit a bit earlier than those at the Capitol were expecting.

“We always continue discussions, but I would say most of the more controversial things would be brought up next year,” Skelos said.

A Siena poll earlier this year showed most voters backed the IDC-GOP coalition in the Senate.

But in the interview this morning, Stewart-Cousins pointed out the state’s voters in 2012 backed a Democratic Senate.

“Everybody gets the fact that we deserve leadership that is progressive… or at least transparent enough who is in charge,” she said.
