The state’s top legislative leaders met with Gov. Andrew Cuomo for about an hour on Thursday morning as the legislative session winds down.

Here is a transcript of Speaker Carl Heastie answering questions from reporters:

Reporter: Mr. Speaker, there’s discussion of the 421a extension. The governor says he wants to do a straight extension. Is that something you can support?

Heastie: We just had a quick meeting. There was still a bunch of items on the list. Nothing definitive, nothing concrete. I need to go talk to the conference.

Reporter: Mr. Speaker, were you alarmed at all by the governor’s comments yesterday that there might be straight extenders?

Heastie: The governor has a right to say what he wants to say. You should ask him that question.

Reporter: Well, do you want extenders? Do you want these programs to expire? Or are we still in place where we’re still negotiating?

Heastie: There’s a whole lot of things on the table that have to be talked about before the end of session and I want to go upstairs and talk to the conference.

Reporter: Can you tell us about the rent laws and when the vote will come on that?

Heastie: There’s a whole lot of things on the list and I need to go talk to the conference.

Reporter: Are you going to be keeping members here through the weekend?

Heastie: I need to go upstairs and talk to the conference.

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan left the meeting after Heastie. In essence, he refused to talk to the press assembled outside the governor’s office and left through an alternative route.
