Governor’s last public appearance was over a week ago

As the New York state legislature slogs through its overtime session, still evidently struggling to come to conclusions on rent regulations and 421a, Governor Andrew Cuomo is staying out of the spotlight.

Cuomo’s last public appearance was over a week ago at a press conference in Yonkers, Capital New York reported. He has privately negotiated with Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, but has not said anything about the talks.

Last week, he even missed a fundraiser for his reelection campaign, as the event went on without him.

Late Saturday, Republicans proposed a bill that would adjust the threshold for vacancy decontrol, which allows landlords to bring apartments up to market rate when apartments are vacated and monthly rent exceeds $2,500. Democrats have advanced a two-year renewal that would not change the threshold. Cuomo’s office has declined to comment on either proposal.

New York City’s rent laws expired last week, with lawmakers subsequently passing a five-day extension that gives them until Tuesday to come to an agreement. [Capital NY] — Tess Hofmann
