From the Morning Memo:

Add Gov. Andrew Cuomo to those skeptical of a constitutional convention.

On Thursday, Cuomo said at a news conference he thinks “the devil’s going to be in the details” when it comes to the structure of the convention.

“Who are the delegates? Who would control it? What are the issues? I think that’s what New Yorkers want to know,” he said.

“If the convention is going to be run by the people who currently run the government, then I would say the purpose of the convention is basically defeated.”

To be fair, Cuomo had sought to change the structure of the convention before, proposing a plan to study how to change the delegate-selection process, spending $1 million to “create an expert, non-partisan commission to develop a blueprint for a convention,” according to his 2016 agenda book.

“The commission will also be authorized to recommend fixes to the current convention delegate selection process, which experts agree is flawed,” Cuomo said at the time.

At the time, Cuomo was bullish on the prospect of convening a con-con, which voters can determine later this year in a referendum.

“The stakes could not be higher, the process of government in New York State is broken,” the book stated. “Governor Cuomo believes a constitutional convention offers voters the opportunity to achieve lasting reform in Albany.”

But by his own admission on Thursday, nothing came of that plan.

“I wouldn’t take step one before you take step two,” he said. “I think you should vote aye as long as you have the proviso that you have an agreement the delegates are going to be non-elected officials.”

The argument is largely reflected by the opponents of the con-con, who worry the delegate selection process will be controlled by wealthy interests who could roll back hard-won collective bargaining rights and protections for the environment.

Some academics and good-government organizations who support a convention say it’s actually the opposite, that voters will have control each step of the way.

Still, the opposition among elected officials and disparate groups who lobby Albany is unusually uniform in its opposition to holding a convention.

“There’s a whole host of things that New Yorkers take for granted because they are in fact in our constitution,” said Sen. Diane Savino, a Democrat from Staten Island who has strong ties to labor. “All of things are up for grabs in a constitutional convention.”
