Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan gave the official Republican response to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State and budge presentation on Wednesday, pledging to have his chamber pass measures that will combat terrorism and heroin addiction.

In a video message released after Cuomo’s speech, Flanagan once again called for the Legislature and Cuomo to make a 2 percent cap on state spending increases in the budget permanent.

“It’s so important the Senate has already acted this year to establish a spending cap in law,” Flanagan said. “By doing so, we can shore up the state’s finances for the long haul and protect the families of tomorrow by the over spending of the past.”

And he reiterated his push to eliminate the education cuts in the gap elimination adjustment.

“If we set the politics aside and work together in a bipartisan manner, there is nothing we can’t accomplish,” Flanagan said, adding, “To show New Yorkers that the Legislature continues to take its most important job seriously, we will improve the budget on time for the sixth year in a row.”

The top priority for the Senate GOP? “Jobs, jobs, jobs,” Flanagan said.

The legislative session is the first full one for Flanagan, a Suffolk County lawmaker who took over the top post in the chamber from Dean Skelos, the former majority leader who stepped down in May after he was arrested on corruption charges.

Skelos, like his counterpart Sheldon Silver in the Assembly, was ousted following his December conviction on charges that he used his official capacity as a top legislative leader to aid his son’s business interests.

Flanagan in the message acknowledged that corruption must be addressed in Albany, but added a number of ethics measures have already been approved.

“At the end of the day all the laws in the world won’t prevent bad people from doing bad things,” Flanagan said.

“We take this seriously and are already hard at work to restore the public trust,” he added. “But we should not lose sight of what has already been done to improve the state’s ethics and disclosure laws and to hold elected officials accountable for their actions.”

It’s a potentially momentous year for the Senate GOP conference: Republicans hold a narrow majority in the chamber and Cuomo is seeking to push them to adopt a $15 minimum wage, which would be phased in over the next several years.

Flanagan does not mention the minimum wage proposal in the video message, nor has he said definitively in public statements the conference would not approve another hike in the state’s wage.
