POLITICO New York Playbook: CUOMO's late budget -- SUNY's pushback against Cuomo -- NYPD'S notifications to ICE -- EXPENSIVE COMPLAINTS about Bill O'Reilly

04/03/2017 07:20 AM EDT

By Jimmy Vielkind in Albany and Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, with Addy Baird and Daniel Lippman

The state budget has gone off the rails in a way that's historically normal for Albany but very new for Gov. Andrew Cuomo. State lawmakers blew past Friday's midnight deadline to adopt a spending plan and then spun their wheels all weekend at the Capitol, in an arguably unnecessary series of closed-door briefings and high-level talks about spending $150-plus billion, raising the age of criminal responsibility from 16 to 18, reviving the 421-a housing subsidy program and legalizing ride-hailing outside of New York City. The raise the age issue has been particularly thorny, caught up on the internal dynamics of the Assembly's Democratic conference, the reluctance of upstate Republicans in the Senate and the never-ending sniping between that chamber's two factions of Democrats.

Cuomo sent over a stopgap measure that should prevent a government shutdown, but let's focus on the big picture: The budget is late. Albany had one job, and it didn't do it. (And yes, people who read our rosy prediction in Thursday's Playbook that the budget was shaping up to be on time can rightly point note our house is made of glass.) The governor's biggest accomplishment over six years has been changing the basic story at the Capitol from "they bickered, and it didn't get done" to "the government acted." It's a cornerstone of his political narrative. How long will it be in flux?

GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY MONDAY. The Mets play their season opener in Queens today! Got a tip? Feedback? News to share? Let us know. By email:,,, and, or on Twitter: @JimmyVielkind, @Azi, @addysue, and @dlippman.

WHERE'S ANDREW? Still stuck in Albany, trying to figure out what to do now that the state budget is late.

WHERE'S BILL? Speaking to students in Queens, then attending the Mets home opener, before going to Randall's Island to talk crime statistics. His final event is his weekly interview on NY1.

PREET'S TWEETS: He burned Albany at midnight on Friday, tweeting an April Fools joke that the budget - which hasn't been adopted - contained "sweeping" ethics reforms. About an hour later he wondered if the country's top prosecutor would chastise the president, as recently happened in Venezuela. On Saturday night he tweeted two quotes from what seemed to be a talk by Richard Feynman, the scientist. And on Sunday, he suggested that he always watches "Miller's Crossing" when it comes on TV.

- THE ONEIDAS' NEW CASINO - Post-Standard's Elizabeth Doran: " The Oneida Indian Nation will soon begin construction on its third Central New York casino - this one in Bridgeport - just over the Onondaga County-Madison County line near Cicero. The casino, which will cost $40 million to $50 million, will be built on Route 31 near the corner of Bridgeport-Kirkville Road in the town of Sullivan in Madison County, Oneida Nation officials told | The Post-Standard. The location is a few hundred feet from Onondaga County. Construction will begin in May, Oneida Nation officials said. They estimate the project will create 250 construction jobs. It will open in spring 2018, they said. The new 24-hour-a-day facility - called Point Place Casino - will be 65,000 square feet and will employ about 200 people, officials said. There will be parking for about 800 vehicles, they said." Read more here.

- RAIDING SUNY FOUNDATIONS FOR TUITION HELP - Newsday's Yancey Roy: "State University of New York campus presidents have criticized a proposal by Cuomo to raid the colleges' foundations to help pay for his 'free college tuition' initiative. The letter, signed by presidents of the four major universities of the SUNY system, including Stony Brook University's Dr. Samuel L. Stanley Jr., said 'redirecting' their funds not only will hurt their institutions but also 'lead to a downturn in giving to our foundations as potential donors realize that their deeply appreciated donations are not being used for their intended purpose.' The presidents said the campus foundations legally are private, independent organizations that carry their own fiduciary responsibilities to donors. 'This potential action, however, could crack the philanthropic pillars of our support and threaten all of your good work and accomplishments,' wrote the presidents of Stony Brook, Albany, Binghamton and Buffalo campuses."

- TRAIN STATION SHADE AT EASTER EVENT - Buffalo News' Bob McCarthy: "A Broadway Market gathering Friday was supposed to kick off traditional Easter celebrations at the East Side landmark. Instead, it laid wide open a growing rift among city leaders over where to locate a new Buffalo rail station, while signaling the start of a bruising mayoral race, to boot. Mayor Byron W. Brown grimaced a few times during the noontime ceremony as speaker after speaker only briefly mentioned Easter but rallied for a Central Terminal location. He stoically absorbed a barrage of criticism indirectly lobbed his way from politicians addressing crowds gathered in the shadow of the Art Deco terminal, after earlier this week dismissing 'nostalgia' as a criterion for the new station."

- DE BLASIO EULOGIZES TIMOTHY CAUGHMAN - New York Times's David Dunlap: " The mayor's most respectful gesture may have been his simple presence. As if to make a point by his own example that Mr. Caughman had been transformed by events into an Everyman of New York City, Mr. de Blasio remained for the entire funeral, which lasted almost two hours. ... Running for re-election and dogged by a sometimes tense relationship with reporters, he obliquely mentioned newspaper articles that had discussed Mr. Caughman's relatively minor criminal record. 'There were news reports about this man that somehow dwelt on something that happened to him that happened to every single one of us in this room,' the mayor said, 'which is, somewhere along the way, we made a mistake. So why, if he's a victim, an innocent victim of a racist attack, does any reporter want to talk about a mistake he made along the way. Why is that pertinent?'As murmurs of assent began building, Mr. de Blasio declared, 'What's pertinent is that he was the victim of a racist attack.' At that, there was applause." Read more here.

- RAMARLEY GRAHAM'S MOTHER, ATTACKS DE BLASIO ON POLICE REFORM - Daily News Op-ed: "Mayor de Blasio is misleading New Yorkers about police reform and his administration's token efforts to ensure accountability for the NYPD killing my son Ramarley Graham.Ramarley was killed in 2012, when police officers who had followed him on the street, wrongly claiming they thought he had a gun, busted into our home and one of them shot him dead. For over five years, I've been forced to fight to expose the wide-ranging misconduct surrounding my son's killing. The de Blasio administration says the NYPD disciplinary process worked in the case of Richard Haste, the officer who pulled the trigger. That's totally disingenuous. The process was dysfunctional and incomplete by design.

"The mayor has disrespectfully tried to portray me as clouded by grief, but I'm clearer than he'll ever be about police accountability. I was one of the many family members of New Yorkers killed by police who moved Gov. Cuomo to enact a special prosecutor for police killings in 2015, even though we knew it would apply only to future cases, and not affect any of our families' existing cases. De Blasio was absent then - and he's absent now on police accountability." Read more here.

- NOT ICED OUT: "NYPD alerts feds to Criminal Court appearances of immigrants facing deportation despite 'sanctuary' vow - Daily News' Shayna Jacobs and Stephen Rex Brown: "The NYPD alerts federal immigration agents to the Criminal Court appearances of immigrants facing deportation, the Daily News has learned. As a 'sanctuary city,' the city currently only complies with Immigration and Customs Enforcement "detainer" orders to hold a defendant until federal agents can take custody in cases involving violent or serious felonies. But in the process of verifying warrants against a defendant, officials said the NYPD will contact relevant law enforcement, including ICE, thereby alerting the agency to an immigrant's upcoming appearance in a city courtroom.

"Advocates slammed the practice, saying it amounts to 'collusion' with immigration officials that goes against the spirit of Mayor de Blasio's pledge that the city will remain a sanctuary city. ... On March 2, an NYPD administrative aide noted in the Central Booking system that he had 'notified ICE' about the arrest of David Gonzalez, 51, screenshots obtained by The News show. ... On March 15, the same administrative aide noted he was 'awaiting call from local ICE office' regarding Milton Chimborazo, 35 ... In both cases, screenshots show the city did not comply with ICE "detainer" orders. Instead, immigration agents just showed up to court. ... NYPD officials noted ICE also has access to arrest information on its own." Read more here.

ON STAGE -- "Review: A Mesmerizing 'Hairy Ape' Brings Existentialism to Park Avenue," by NYT's Ben Brantley: "A warning to the residents of the Upper East Side, especially those of you who live on one of those blocks so clean "yuh could eat a fried egg offen it." Yank (probably better known to you as the Ape), that existentially challenged brute whom you humiliated into a suicidal spiral, has returned to your neighborhood. And he's still as mad as hell. In a serendipitous marriage of theater and real estate, Richard Jones's mesmerizing revival of Eugene O'Neill's "The Hairy Ape" opened at the Park Avenue Armory on Thursday night, amid the blue-chip addresses where its title character roams and despairs. While it would be comforting to dismiss this 1922 drama as a fascinating anachronism, O'Neill's nightmarish parable of alienation and class conflict still feels close to home. First staged at the Old Vic Theater in London, Mr. Jones's interpretation, designed by Stewart Laing, is ravishing enough to please the sort of aesthetes who worship Robert Wilson's exquisite dreamscapes. But this production also rings with the primal pain of a working-class American who, once stripped of the identity of his job, discovers he belongs nowhere." "Hairy Ape" is a NYT's Critics' Pick.

- KILL BILL? Will Bill O'Reilly, on his show this evening, address Saturday's bombshell New York Times exposé detailing a combined $13 million in settlements (some old, some which followed the Roger Ailes scandal) with five women who have alleged the Fox News anchor harassed or otherwise acted inappropriately toward them? Fox News didn't have an answer to that question last night. But O'Reilly has been known to address criticism and controversy head-on, as he did on his show last week when he apologized for making fun of Congresswoman Maxine Waters' hair. Ditto in 2004 when one of the five women who appears in the Times story, former "O'Reilly Factor" producer Andrea Mackris, slapped O'Reilly with a $60 million sexual harassment lawsuit. ("This is the single most evil thing I have ever experienced, and I have seen a lot," he said on the "Factor" back then. "These people picked the wrong guy.") More in today's column.

- APRIL 1 POST PRANK: "Heil President Donald Trump." That was one of various push notifications blasted out to subscribers of the New York Post's mobile app on Saturday. It was an April Fools joke, of course, but not on the part of the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid -- rather, the pranksters who hacked the Post's digital setup are to blame. POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah handily screen-grabbed all of the Post's fake news , as it were, which included not only Nirvana lyrics, but several appeals to Trump himself, like the following: "Open your heart to those you do not understand and listen to all those you fear and look down upon." The Post's statement, via the AP: "Our push alert notification system was compromised this evening. We are working to resolve the issue."

- REVOLVING DOOR: Sal Rizzo, a veteran of New Jersey newspapers The Record and The Star-Ledger, has joined the Observer to helm the website's Garden State political coverage. Lawrence Lewitinn, meanwhile, formerly of Yahoo Finance and CNBC, has been named deputy editor overseeing business and technology coverage.

REAL ESTATE, with POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg:

- "Strong Quarter for Manhattan's Downtown Office Market," by Wall Street Journal's Keiko Morris: "Downtown Manhattan's office market is heating up again. The area recorded 2.3 million square feet of leasing in the first quarter, the most in two years and 44% more than the quarterly average since 2007, according to a report from real-estate services firm JLL. Five of the 10 largest Manhattan leases for the quarter were downtown. The 378,000-square-foot deal to relocate digital music company Spotify from Chelsea to 4 World Trade Center was among the biggest transactions, the report said. In the typical tech and advertising corridors of Midtown South, the largest leases involved companies in the insurance, financial-services and beauty sectors as tech employment growth and venture capital funding cooled, the report said."

- "Bush Terminal tenants decry possible displacement under Made In NY," by Curbed's Nathan Kensinger: "Down on the waterfront of Sunset Park, a last pocket of abandoned post-industrial grit has managed to survive. Hidden behind a campus of low warehouses, a series of crumbling piers and a hollowed-out powerhouse have become a graffiti-covered playground for local teenagers. Walking along these dead-end streets, where the cobblestones are laced with cut-off train tracks, you might think that this section of Bush Terminal was empty and unused. When Mayor Bill de Blasio arrived here last month to announce his plans for his Made In NY Campus, that was certainly the impression the press received. ... But what the Made In NY Plan had not yet accounted for were the dozens of small businesses and artists who were already tenants inside these warehouses, including numerous garment manufacturing companies." Read the story here.

- "South Bronx rezoning proposal raised during talk of citywide housing, transit plans," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration is considering rezoning an area surrounding Southern Boulevard in the Bronx to create more affordable housing and retail while expanding access to outdoor spaces for neighborhoods bisected by a highway. The new City Planning director, Marisa Lago, referenced the proposal during a broader discussion on rezonings and transit projects across the city hosted by the New York Building Congress on Friday. "The city looked at this area, which has been so challenged from a transportation point of view, cut off from the waterfront. It is also a neighborhood with tremendous challenges from a public health point of view," Lago said during the hour-long discussion with Economic Development president James Patchett, moderated by Building Congress president Carlo Scissura.
