The Independent Democratic Conference this week unveiled its 2017 agenda that bores down on key issues ranging from protecting immigrants, boosting education aid, homeownership, child care and and protections for workers.

The plan proposed this week includes expanding property tax exemptions for elderly and disabled homeowners. The plan would also increase the wages of home health aides over the next six years so their pay is above the statewide minimum wage.

And IDC is backing calls for juvenile justice reform, spending more on Foundation Aid for education and provide legal assistance for immigrants.

The agenda comes as the IDC is renewing its alignment with Senate Republicans, who are retaining a razor-thin majority in the chamber.

Though mainline Democrats remain disappointed the IDC is sticking in a coalition with the GOP conference, IDC Leader Jeff Klein of the Bronx has touted his conference’s ability to deliver on their major issues.

“New Yorkers want real results and solutions to their everyday concerns,” Klein said in a statement. “The IDC is going to make a positive change for New York’s working- and middle-class families who struggle to send their children to college through our College Affordability for All plan, make sure our teenagers are treated as such by Raising the Age of criminal responsibility and create good-paying jobs through our Made by New Yorkers vision.”

Meanwhile, the IDC is also backing key issues being championed this week by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, including an expansion of the Tuition Assistance Program by raising the eligibility cap from $80,000 to $200,000.

The conference also is supportive of a plan that would provide tax incentives to businesses that provide child care to their workers.

The IDC this year has grown from five members to seven, with the addition of Sens. Jesse Hamilton and Marisol Alcantara, now giving them one lawmaker representing each of the five boroughs of New York City.

“The IDC has always changed New York for the better. After finally closing the Gap Elimination Adjustment last year, this session we will work towards accelerating the implementation of foundation aid to fairly fund our schools,” said Sen. David Valesky, the conference’s deputy leader and a Syracuse lawmaker. “Our visionary agenda also seeks to bring good-paying jobs upstate through the Made by New Yorkers program to keep manufacturing jobs here and showcase products made in this state.”
