Sen. John DeFrancisco isn’t pleased with the direction of the chamber.

His bills aren’t getting votes. The bills that do get votes are ones in which he has fundamental political disagreements.

These aren’t the gripes of a lawmaker confined to the minority or the back bench of the Legislature: DeFrancisco is the number two Republican in the Senate, the deputy majority leader.

In an interview on The Capitol Pressroom on Wednesday, the Syracuse Republican vented that his bill that had the aim of reforming the state’s procurement process — a measure Gov. Andrew Cuomo didn’t want to see approved — never got a vote.

“I’m frustrated with bills that make sense not getting on the floor for a vote,” he said.

The top-down nature of the Legislature in Albany has long frustrated lawmakers, even those with leadership titles. DeFrancisco, however, had sought the leadership post against Sen. John Flanagan, garnering support from a bloc of upstate lawmakers. He has not been shy to express his dissatisfaction with policy making since then.

DeFrancisco is still considering a run for governor next year and he insisted Wednesday he did not want to see the party enveloped in a primary for the nomination. The field for governor on the GOP side shrank this month with Rob Astorino’s loss in the Westchester County executive’s race.

Harry Wilson, a businessman and former member of President Obama’s auto industry task force, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb are also considering bids.

DeFrancisco said he will know by the end of December as to whether he’s going to run.
