Leaders meeting kicked off today with Gov. Andrew Cuomo huddling for more than an hour with legislative leaders Dean Skelos, Jeff Klein and Carl Heastie.

As is tradition, the officials emerged from the meeting with Cuomo to say little about what was discussed, but predicted a budget would be passed before the March 31 deadline.

Skelos described the conversation as being “very broad. A lot of policy issues have been discussed.”

He added that even as Cuomo calls for disclosure requirements for lawmakers, he’s supportive of new measures for the governor’s office as well, listing two governors and a state comptroller who have run afoul of corruption problems in recent years.

“As we’re discussing disclosure certainly I think there’s going to be robust changes to the requirements of legislators in terms of disclosure,” Skelos, a Long Island Republican, told reporters. “But I think there also should be disclosure by the executive branch. There’s a lot of focus on the Legislature. But I should point out — Spitzer, Hevesi, David Paterson — there have been problems in all branches of government and we’re going to work on a bipartisan way to fix those problems.”

Cuomo said at a cabinet meeting earlier in the day that there are more opportunities for public corruption in the Legislature than in his branch of government.

“Structurally you don’t have the conflicts with the executive because you don’t have the opportunities with the executive,” Cuomo said.

The governor himself has a book deal worth at least $700,000 for his memoir released last year.

The meeting was the first for Heastie, the newly elected Assembly speaker.

Back this year also is Klein, the leader of the Independent Democratic Conference in the state Senate who no longer holds the power of co-president.

“I’m very proud of the work I was able to do with Senator Skelos and New Yorkers and we want to keep that going this year,” he said after the meeting.
