From the Morning Memo:

The Long Island Six have faced pressure over congestion pricing and Amazon, but the Democratic conference is highlighting where the half-dozen suburban lawmakers agree: The state budget.

The Democratic lawmakers who represent Nassau and Suffolk counties in the state Senate over the weekend outlined a package of propels they want to see included in a final budget agreement, including a $1.2 billion increase in direct aid to schools, a full restoration in direct aid to local governments and $150 million more in spending for local road improvements.

At the same time, the Democratic lawmakers touted the inclusion of a property tax cap on the conference’s one-house budget proposal approved as a standalone bill earlier this year by the Senate.

And the lawmakers want to include a Reassessment Relief Credit, aimed at suburban homeowners, which would provide tax relief to those who meet the same eligibility requirements as the STAR program.

“Hardworking Long Islanders deserve a budget that eases their tax burden and improves services,” said Sen. Todd Kaminsky.

“Our Senate Majority is committed to a permanent tax cap, increasing school aid and road funding, adding billions of dollars for clean water infrastructure, and holding the MTA accountable. Over the next two weeks, we will work diligently to bring Long Islanders a great budget they can be proud of.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration has cast doubt on the spending proposals backed by both chambers. The Senate’s plan did not include a tax increase on the rich to generate revenue for the extra spending.

Cuomo’s top budget aide, Robert Mujica, called the proposal from the Senate “wholly incredible” due to spending gaps in the plan.
