The budget resolution unveiled on Tuesday by Senate Democrats would add $1.2 billion in direct aid to schools — a figure long sought by education advocates in New York.

Senate Democrats also signaled support for the legalization of marijuana as Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said the chances of an agreement over the details of the program are unlikely to met in a final budget agreement by the end of the month.

Senate Democrats also want a modification of Cuomo’s proposal for boosting funding for mass transit in New York City,, including an additional $3 billion in operating aid for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority as well as more funding for a mass transit system in western New York, the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority to begin a metro rail expansion project.

The Senate had previously approved a permanent extension of the state’s property tax cap, and also proposed in its budget to restore direct aid to municipal governments.

And the Senate Democrats backed a plan banning plastic bags, while also proposing a fee on paper takeout bags.

“Our budget plan will move New York State forward and use taxpayer money responsibly,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said.

“The Senate Majority budget proposes campaign finance reforms, a permanent property tax cap, additional AIM funds, protections for grassroots advocates, support for congestion pricing, and more important plans to move New York forward. Additionally, state government must ensure all New York students have access to a high quality education, and the Senate Majority proposal will help advance that goal by providing funding increases in our education system. The Senate Majority, together with our Assembly Majority colleagues, are committed to passing an on-time, responsible, and effective budget.”
