As Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to push for his version of the renewal of the 421a tax abatement, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie on Tuesday reiterated the support of his conference for a prevailing wage component.

“This conference has always been supportive of prevailing wage,” Heastie said. “I wouldn’t view that as any different on any proposal that we’re apart of.”

De Blasio backs a plan that would expand affordable housing under the abatement, which is due to expire this month.

The position does not include a prevailing wage component for construction workers, which labor unions have pushed back hard on — opposition that has won the tacit approval of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The AFL-CIO has been pushing back hard in particular against the mayor’s plan as well, while a rally of labor groups was held at the Capitol today to back the prevailing wage component.

Cuomo and de Blasio exchanged increasingly heated words over the tax abatement issue over the weekend, though the rhetoric has cooled in recent days after the governor in a radio interview called the mayor “a friend” even as they have disagreements over policy.

Asked about the ongoing feud and whether it’s a distraction, Heastie grind and said, “They’re fighting?”

The speaker said he did not want to be a go-between for the governor and the mayor, New York’s two most prominent Democrats.

“The mayor is acting on behalf of the city and the governor in his mind is acting on behalf of the state,” Heastie said. “I don’t have an issue dealing with the mayor on issues affecting the city at all.”

Still, Heastie pivoted when talking with reporters about the abatement to rent control regulations, which are also due to sunset this month.

“Right now, the biggest focus for me and the conference has been around rent regulations,” Heastie said. “I continue to let the governor and the Senate know what our position is.”

He added: “Whenever I speak to the governor and the Senate, I reinforce to them that rent regulations is our biggest priority.”

The Assembly approved his legislative rent control package last month that includes ending the practice of vacancy decontrol. Cuomo has said it is unlikely vacancy decontrol will end, but he is open to modifying it as well as raising the ceiling in the regulations to $2,700 a month.
