Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie in a radio interview on Wednesday said his conference won’t file a legal challenge to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s use of the 30-day budget amendments.

But the Bronx Democrat reiterated concerns with the governor’s use of the amendments to introduce ethics legislation into the budget talks.

“I continue to challenge the public and the media to be concerned about the Legislature being threatened to go into negotiations,” Heastie said.

Still, the speaker with reporters last week downplayed the significance of neither chamber of the state Legislature introducing the amendments, which would require the disclosure of lawmakers’ private clients as well as receipts in order to obtain travel reimbursements.

“I think you guys seemed more concerned about the 30-day amendments,” Heastie said after meeting with Cuomo to discuss the budget. “It didn’t even come up with the governor. We had a nice chat.”

Republican Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos has similarly said a legal challenge — which could amount to a sequel to the Pataki v. Silver lawsuit over the governor’s budget authority — is not “necessary” at the moment.

The leaders of the minority conferences, too, have raised issues with Cuomo’s amendments and budget tactics.

Despite the chaffing over the strategy, Heastie said he expects some form of ethics legislation to be included in the final agreement.

“If we can get to an agreement on that, we have no problem including it,” Heastie said.

And if it isn’t, the Assembly Democrats plan to include their own legislation, he said.

“I believe ethics will be within the budget framework,” Heastie said. “If it doesn’t, Assembly will come forward with an ethics package.”
