Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie on Monday insisted paid family leave and a $15 minimum wage remain on the negotiating table, though an agreement remained elusive this afternoon on the broader $154 billion budget.

The lack of a deal comes lawmakers and Gov. Andrew Cuomo debate a small wage increase for the upstate region north of Westchester County.

At the same time, GOP and Democratic lawmakers in the Senate and Assembly agree in concept on a 12-week paid family leave program, but differ on how it would be paid for and how the benefits would be phased in for workers.

“Albany is the art of the compromise. We’ll see what happens at the end of the day on minimum wage and paid family leave,” Heastie said. “The members are fully aware that sometimes you have to compromise up here in Albany.”

Meanwhile, there’s concerns from New York City Democrats over the costs shifts in the Medicaid program that Cuomo has proposed.

“I think in some regards we are able to move forward, but there’s still some outstanding issues about how the city of New York comes out of this,” Heastie said. “There’s different iteration because you have to factor in the cost of the minimum wage. But I think the conference is OK with where we have to go.”

Meanwhile, Gov. Jerry Brown of California this afternoon announced he was signing a law that would increase that state’s minimum wage to $15 by 2022.

Heastie said the California move — making that state the first to increase its minimum wage to $15 in the nation — not a factor in the budget talks.

“We congratulate California, but we still feel we to get done what we have to do,” Heastie said.

He was unsure, however, whether there could be an agreement could be reached in time to avoid Cuomo issuing messages of necessity to waive the three-day aging process for bills.

“I don’t know, I’m not sure,” he said. “We’re hoping to still get an on-time budget without messages.”
