Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s budget proposal includes an extension of high tax rates on the wealthy, setting up conflict with Senate Republicans who control the chamber.

At the same time, Cuomo wants to cut rates for middle income earners, including those who earn between $40,000 and $150,000 as well as $150,000 and $300,000.

Keeping the tax in place for high income earners, due to expire at the end of the year, could generated $700 million for the state.

Spending for education aid will increase by $1 billion, which Cuomo described to lawmakers as an “historic” hike in school aid. Of that, $500 million would go toward an increase in foundation aid for education spending.

Cuomo privately briefed Senate lawmakers for more 90 minutes at the executive mansion in Albany, with Assembly Democrats due to receive the details later this evening.

It’s unclear based on conversations with Senate lawmakers whether policy issues such as expanding ride hailing outside of New York City or ethics legislation would be included by Cuomo in the budget.

Similarly unclear is the overall spending in the plan, though Cuomo did say it would be within a self-imposed 2 percent cap on the current fiscal year’s spending.
