Gov. Andrew Cuomo wouldn’t say much today on the topic of the seemingly hibernating Committee to Save New York, the consortium of wealthy interests that backed his legislative agenda over his first two years in office.

Cuomo, on Staten Island today to give a local version of his State of the State address, deflected questions on whether the committee not running a well-funded advertising campaign on behalf of his budget proposal was a problem.

“You would have to ask them — what they support, what they don’t support,” Cuomo said.

As Ken Lovett at The Daily News noted today and I’ve reported on in the past, ads in favor of the governor’s $142.6 billion agenda are once again flooding the airwaves, but this year it is a traditional return to Cuomo being the public face of the TV spots.

Meanwhile, Cuomo is undertaking an aggressive fundraising schedule in 2013, a full year before he runs for a second term.

The state Democratic Party has been paying for the ads as opposed to Committee to Save New York, which is yet to register to lobby state government this year.

Cuomo has always denied any link to the committee, which includes allies of his from business groups and private-sector unions. The committee’s relative silence comes as Cuomo pushes a minimum wage hike in his budget proposal, a move that the group’s various interests have generally opposed in the past.

“They support what they want to support, they don’t support what they don’t want to support,” Cuomo said of the group.

At the same time, new disclosure rules for lobbying Albany are taking effect, which would require more expansive disclosure of how the committee is funded.
