From the Morning Memo:

The legislative session drew to its scheduled close on Wednesday, with state lawmakers leaving a range of issues — renewing speed cameras for New York City, delinking teacher evaluations from state examinations and regulating sports betting — on the table.

It’s not clear if the legislator will return after Tuesday’s congressional primaries to take up speed camera extension legislation; the program expires at the end of next month.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, meanwhile, met privately with legislative leaders throughout the final day, but largely restricted his public appearances to TV interviews on national cable networks and NY1 to discuss President Donald Trump ending his administration’s family separation policy for migrants at the U.S. border.

Here are five things to know as the session ends:

1. The Legislature could, possibly, return: It’s a very narrow window that lawmakers would seek to come back in to take up a renewal of speed cameras for New York City. They would likely not do it before the upcoming congressional primaries on Tuesday, which will include several of their members running in key House races. At the same time, the July 4 holiday week will almost certainly have some lawmakers on already scheduled vacations. That leaves a few days at the end of next week to take up a potential renewal bill, if the votes can be mustered. That’s been shown to be easier said than done in the Senate.

2. And speaking of the state Senate: It was a slog to get anything through the Senate in the final weeks of the legislative session, the gears of progress gummed up partially by partisanship, but also simple math. It takes 32 votes to pass anything in the Senate; each conference had only 31 members. Lawmakers were able to notch victories on bills such as creating a prosecutorial conduct commission, regulations aimed at protecting ticket purchasers, among others. But the heavier lifts, including an attempt to jam the Assembly with an omnibus package of local tax extenders, failed to gain passage. The Senate Republicans were left with 31 members after the absence of Sen. Tom Croci, who is leaving at the end of the year and is on active military duty. The impasse also can be partially traced back to April, when the Independent Democratic Conferenced under pressure from liberals and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, disbanded and rejoined the mainline fold, depriving the Republicans of a key bloc of votes.

3. The political season started early this year: Election years in Albany are strange animals on their own. But the political season began unusually early this year, with Cuomo facing a primary challenge from a high-profile opponent, actress and advocate Cynthia Nixon. Cuomo has responded to the challenge with an emphasis on issues friendly to the liberal base of the party, a reflection of really his last four years in office. After the budget was approved, Cuomo forced the IDC and Democrats in the Senate to merge, he ratcheted up his rhetoric against Trump’s policies and pursued legislation like a “red flag” gun control bill that appeared to stand little actual chance of passing in the Senate. In the Senate, Democrats are bidding their time to November, hopeful a wave year will sweep down-ballot candidates into office for the party.

4. NYSUT has a campaign issue: Barring a return to Albany for lawmakers, it’s unlikely teacher evaluations will be separated from state examination results. Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan sought to link the issue overall to expanding charter schools, a “cyanide” pill for Assembly Democrats. That leaves the issue for the campaign season, and NYSUT has proven adept at turning matters into political concerns for their active members. NYSUT had largely blamed Republicans for the bill not moving forward, meaning Cuomo himself will be spared much public blame for the situation. That’s key for him as he continues to lead Nixon in the polls.

5. Albany could look very different next year: Regardless of what happens in November, the churn in state government is unusual. Five Republicans in the state Senate are retiring. Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle could win a congressional seat, leading to the departure of one of the Capitol’s most visible figures. For a place where not a lot changes year to year, the cast is about to undergo real upheaval.
