From the Morning Memo:

There are three weeks to go before lawmakers leave Albany, likely for the rest of the year. It’s a window of time that Gov. Andrew Cuomo doesn’t think is very big.

“Let me make this as a blanket statement: It is late in the day, for anything,” Cuomo said late last week.

Cuomo on Friday threw cold water on the proposals being pushed by two of his Democratic rivals: Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Schneiderman is pushing an omnibus ethics and campaign finance reform bill. De Blasio is pushing changes to a property tax abatement that are opposed by labor groups.

There are 10 days left on the legislative session calendar.

“You have a number of days left and any complicated issue, anyone who has watched Albany with one for a short period of time, you can’t get realistically a complicated issue with this Senate and this Assembly done in a matter of days,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo at the very least as a complicated relationship with both de Blasio and Schneiderman and the relationships the governor has with both is once again publicly strained over policy matters.

The mayor and attorney general are further to the political left of Cuomo, a moderate Democrat, especially on economic issues, but both men need Cuomo’s support on key issues facing the legislature.

“I think leadership requires taking responsibility,” de Blasio said. “I think that there’s not an appetite is a notion I reject.”

De Blasio spent a day in Albany last week week to personally lobby on a variety issues facing the city; issues that ultimately Cuomo gets to negotiate with top state lawmakers.

“I think a lot of problems have occurred up here. I think all over the state are disappointed in Albany. It’s a chance for Albany to turn the page,” de Blasio said.

Schneiderman, too, thinks three weeks and 10 scheduled session days is enough time to get things done at the Capitol.

“I’ve stood at those press conferences. I’m done vouching for incremental reforms. Let’s get it done,” Schneiderman said when unveiling his ethics package.

Schneiderman was on Long Island on Friday, and said he was confident there was enough time to pass his ethics bill, calling three weeks at the Capitol a lifetime.
