Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins in a statement Monday reiterated that a number of the measures Gov. Andrew Cuomo is outlining in his 2017 are those that have been championed by her mainline Democratic conference in the chamber.

And in the statement released in response to Cuomo kicking off his statewide six-stop State of the State tour, Stewart-Cousins said a number of the measures could have stood a better chance of passing had the Senate flipped to Democratic control.

“Another day and another set of proposals by the Governor that mirrors initiatives long supported by Senate Democrats,” she said.

“The latest ‘State of the State’ proposals highlighting much needed election reforms are nearly identical to legislation drafted by myself, and Deputy Leader Gianaris. The increased availability for electric vehicle charging stations proposal mirrors efforts pushed by Senator Parker. The wage theft proposal is similar to a bill advanced by Senator Peralta and the protecting seniors proposals are similar to bills created by our Aging Committee Ranker Senator Diaz. If all Democrats had united and given us our rightful majority these proposals would pass the Senate.”

The statement underscores the souring feelings between Senate Democrats and Cuomo after he declined to step into the chamber’s leadership battle late last year.

Updated: IDC Sen. David Valesky is indeed carrying legislation that has the broad goals of the measure aimed at protecting seniors against fraud as referenced by Stewart-Cousins in her statement. The IDC and the GOP this year are once again in a majority governing coalition.
