New York State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs in an interview on Thursday confirmed he has spoken with Democratic state senators about his concerns surrounding the political fallout of a bill that would extend access to driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants.

Jacobs’s discussions were first reported by Gotamist.

Jacobs declined to say which senators he spoke to, but did say not all were from Long Island, where Jacobs has served as the chairman of the Nassau County Democratic Committee.

“Any senator that was interested in my views on this matter, I gave them my view,” he said. “I’m just saying those that did reach out to me, I gave them my view.”

He added, “None of these senators won by landslides.”

The Democratic-led Assembly on Tuesday is expected to advance the measure, known as the Green Light bill, in a full floor vote for the first time. The proposal for the last decade has been a politically fraught issue for Democrats after it was first backed and later withdrawn by then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

Jacobs told me he was not acting at the behest of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has said he would sign the bill, but on Thursday in a radio interview doubted whether Democrats in the Senate have the votes to pass it.

“The governor did not ask me to do or say anything on this matter,” he said.

And, more broadly, Jacobs said he was not acting on behalf of any concerns the governor may have privately about the proposal.

“I don’t think that’s fair to the governor, I don’t think that’s fair to me,” he said. “The governor is speaking about what’s good for government. I’m speaking about what’s good politically for those who are elected to govern.”

Jacobs reiterated his concerns in the interview about the measure’s political impact for Democrats elected in battleground districts. Democrats last year won a working majority in the state Senate for the first time in a decade, flipping Republican-held seats on Long Island and the Hudson Valley.

“I can’t say for sure what the outcome would be,” Jacobs said of the political fallout if the Green Light bill is approved. “We are getting such a banging on several of the things that the Democrats did this year that I’m afraid this could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. It’s not necessarily fatal if it’s the only thing we chose to do.”

Jacobs said Democrats in moderate-to-conservative areas of the state are “getting a lot of heat” on measures already approved this year like the Dream Act, which extends tuition assistance to undocumented immigrants, eliminating cash bail for misdemeanors and non-violent felonies as well as a measure strengthening abortion laws.

Jacobs said the RHA, which he and Democrats formally backed, has been attacked “for the way it was written.”

“I think there’s a great deal to be said about doing some good informational education around these ideas and selling them before you do that,” he said. “There’s not been enough selling — press conferences, town hall forums. We’ve had none of that, where’s the rush?”

He added, “When you win with a tight margin and have representatives that come from regions that are not as progressive as others you have to be careful. The question I have to do you want to play the short game or the long game?”
