From the Morning Memo:

Assembly Democrats on Monday evening released their one-house budget proposal, a $170 billion spending plan that would fund transportation in New York City through fees on ride hailing services and cabs in Manhattan and add more money for education than what was proposed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Taxes on the rich would also be increased under the Assembly plan, a move that would likely be opposed by Senate Republicans.

The resolution is non-binding, but provides a roadmap for where lawmakers want to see the budget talks go this month. Senate Republicans are expected to release their own proposal this week.

“The Assembly majority is dedicated to making New York State a better place to live and to raise your family,” said Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie. “Our budget reflects that, making important investments in education, so from pre-k to college, our students have the resources they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.”

The budget would draw $500 million in new revenue from a proposed Transportation Sustainability Program that would create a $2.75 charge for ride hailing services like Uber and Lyft as well as black cars and limousines in Manhattan below 96th Street.

A $1 charge would added to trips outside of the zone. Taxis and other street hailed green cabs hailed below 96th Street would subject to a 50-cent per trip fee.

At the same time, the Assembly wants progressive tax rates for the real estate transfer tax for both residential and commercial properties valued at $5 million and higher.

Finding ways of funding mass transit has been a key issue for lawmakers this legislative session amid ongoing problems with the New York City subway system. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed a congestion pricing plan that would create a system of tolls to help the MTA — a move that has historically been met with bipartisan resistance by lawmakers from the boroughs outside of Manhattan and suburbs.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has proposed a tax increase to help bolster transit, which is considered dead on arrival with both the governor and Senate Republicans.

The Assembly’s one-house budget would also spend $10.5 billion on transportation overall, including adding $490 million to the MTA.

Meanwhile, the Assembly wants to increase education spending by $1.5 billion, putting school aid at $27.1 billion. Cuomo’s budget would increase education spending by $770 million.

The foundation aid increase backed by the Assembly stands at $1.2 billion, a figure backed by public education advocates who say the state is not spending enough on poor and high-needs school districts.

On taxes, the Assembly wants to make permanent a top rate of 8.82 percent and increase taxes for those who make more than $5 million. The hike on the personal income tax for the rich would increase state revenues by $232 million and eventually grow to $4 billion by 2022.

Rates of 9.32 percent for those earning between $5 million and $10 million would be applied, along with 9.82 percent for those who make between $10 million and $100 million. For those earning more than $100 million, the rate would reach 10.32 percent.
