President Donald Trump’s legislative path to a border wall has narrowed significantly on the eve of tonight’s State of the Union speech, and his fallback plan to circumvent Congress by declaring a state of emergency could create a major division in his own party.

Across the state, New Yorkers savored the brief respite from frigid winter temperatures, enjoying spring-like weather while it lasted.

Less than three weeks after he proposed his 2019 state budget, Gov. Andrew Cuomo raised red flags over slipping tax revenues and suggested that some popular items in the fiscal plan, including state aid to schools, could face cuts from what he offered in mid-January.

“That’s a $2.3 billion drop in revenues,” the governor said. “That’s as serious as a heart attack. This is worse than we had anticipated This reduction must be addressed in this year’s budget.”

The governor is blaming the Republican-backed federal tax overhaul that capped state and local tax deductions at $10,000 for the shortfall. He says it’s prompting many of the state’s richest residents — who pay 46 percent of the state’s income tax — to either change their primary residence or leave New York entirely.

Cuomo is not alone in decrying the SALT cap and blaming it for falling revenues. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has made similar claims.

Cuomo warned against adding additional tax tiers to the wealthy, saying New York already imposes the second highest taxes on millionaires in the nation. “This is the flip side,” he said. “Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. The rich leave, and now what do you do?”

State lawmakers, meanwhile, adopted a wait-and-see attitude over New York’s fiscal status, saying they need more information. “It’s still a little too early to determine what we can and can’t do, is this just a blip, is this just a delay?” said Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie.

Queens Sen. Mike Gianaris, a leading critic of Amazon’s proposal to develop a campus in Long Island City, was nominated by his conference leader to a seat on the state’s Public Authorities Control Board, where he could ultimately veto state actions on the project.

Gianaris “will bring an important perspective and accountability to this board as it reviews numerous projects,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said in a statement.

“My position on the Amazon deal is clear and unambiguous and is not changing,” Gianaris said. “It’s hard for me to say what I would do, when I don’t know what it is I would be asked to opine on.”

Cuomo has to accept the nomination and it’s unclear if he will. “This recommendation puts the self-interest of a flip-flopping opponent of the Amazon project above the state’s economic growth and is a clear sign that the Senate Democrats oppose the 25,000 to 40,000 new technology jobs that would diversify our state’s economy,” said Cuomo spokeswoman Dani Lever.
