Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement this afternoon praised the Assembly Democrat’s one-house budget resolution, a document that endorses his minimum wage increase for New York City.

The Assembly is also backing a longer extension of mayoral control for city schools: Gov. Andrew Cuomo backs a three-year sunset, Democrats put that figure at seven. De Blasio had called on Albany for a permanent extension.

“First, we’re pleased that the Assembly included a seven-year extension of mayoral control, as well as an increase in school aid and funds for universal pre-K over the Executive Budget,” de Blasio said. “These additional dollars would help us continue to make the groundbreaking reforms and innovations that truly serve our kids.”

But the minimum wage increase backed by Assembly Democrats aligns with de Blasio’s push to hike the minimum wage in the city to $15 by 2018, plus indexing to inflation future increases.

“The Assembly’s minimum wage proposal is also a critical step toward providing the fair wages New Yorkers need and deserve as we continue to take on income inequality in New York City and beyond,” de Blasio said.

Cuomo’s minimum wage proposal would grow the wage from $8.75 to $11.50 in New York City and $10.50.

Assembly Democrats backed a plan that would provide a larger increase, plus expanding it to include downstate suburban counties.
