Senate Democrats on Tuesday announced they had the support within their conference to approve nine bills designed to strengthen and expand rent control laws in New York.

“Following a long discussion within the Senate Majority Conference, it is clear that we have support for all nine priority housing bills,” said Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. “We have 11 days remaining before current rent regulations expire. We must use that time to work with our partners to pass the strongest housing protections in state history.”

The statement comes after a day of protests in the Capitol that included 61 arrests, including two people charged with third-degree assault.

Lawmakers are considering legislation that would end vacancy decontrol, expand rent control measures to upstate communities through a local opt-in and a bill that would require “good cause” eviction as a way to prevent “unconscionable” increases in rent.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration, meanwhile, called the Democrats’ bluff in the Senate.

“You know a legislative body has the votes for a piece of legislation when they pass the bill,” said senior advisor Rich Azzopardi. “If the Senate has the votes, they should pass the bills today.”
