CUOMO, DE BLASIO QUIETLY SETTLE HOUSING BOND FIGHT - POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: A recent fight between the Cuomo and de Blasio administrations over federally tax-exempt housing bonds ended with little fanfare at a city board meeting Wednesday morning. Housing Development Corporation president Gary Rodney told board members that the administration has received $90 million from the state in the form of bonds for low-income housing projects it plans to close financing on in December. The city has another $46 million remaining from an earlier batch of housing bonds it intends to issue before 2015 is over. http://politi.co/1HHdlXn
-- "Cuomo, de Blasio have secret dinner in bid to mend fences," by Post's Reuven Fenton, Kirstan Conley and Bob Fredericks: "Bitter rivals Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo broke bread during a secret sit-down at a Midtown restaurant in an attempt to mend their fractured relationship ... Hizzoner and Cuomo held the peace summit Tuesday evening in a curtained-off private room in the back of Casa Lever on Park Avenue at East 53rd Street ... 'It looked like a serious business meeting,' a restaurant staffer told The Post, saying there were no outward signs of acrimony but no laughs either during the tête-à-tête. Both ordered the $46-a-plate branzino, but neither had drinks to lighten the mood and they skipped appetizers and dessert. It was unclear who picked up the tab. ... Cuomo and de Blasio were accompanied by Emma Wolfe ... and Melissa DeRosa." http://bit.ly/1N5hWiG
FRONT PAGE OF THE DAY - Per @MicahGrimes: "[Today's] New York Daily News front page: 'GOD ISN'T FIXING THIS [As latest batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hind behind meaningless platitudes'] with tweets from Paul Ryan, Lindsay Graham, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz all using the word "prayers" http://bit.ly/1Oz5xrJ
SILVER'S CHANCES - POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: The appeal process for former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver, convicted this week on seven counts of corruption, is a certainty. His conviction will automatically be heard by the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals thanks to an automatic right to appeal. But that's as far as the certainty goes. Silver faces a tough battle, according to observers. According to Silver's defense attorney, Steven Molo, the former speaker's team intends to revive arguments that the government did not appropriately apply federal Hobbs Act honest services fraud and extortion laws, especially in the wake of the US Supreme Court's precedent-setting decision to strike down significant portions of former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling's corruption case. http://politi.co/1QUSK4p
--During a third day of testimony at the corruption trial of former senate majority leader Dean Skelos, an executive at an environmental technology company described tensions in his office, where Adam Skelos, the senator's son, was employed as a consultant. Under cross-examination by defense lawyers, Bjornulf White, a vice president at AbTech Industries, said he had grown uncomfortable with his relationship with the company's CEO Glenn Rink. "Through the entire relationship I would correct his statements," White said, adding that he was "generally uncomfortable with the way he would describe certain things and not others." http://politi.co/1QV2ueV
-- Owen Johnson, a onetime state senator, will have to be brought back from the grave if defense attorneys for State Sen. Dean Skelos and his son, Adam, want him to testify in the corruption case against the former majority leader.Johnson's name appeared on a list of witnesses which the defense shared with prosecutors at the suggestion of judge Kimba Wood (the prosecution did likewise). But Johnson died last December. "We don't believe it's a real list," Rahul Mukhi, an assistant U.S. Attorney, said on Wednesday. http://politi.co/1IFbnS6
-- Advocates of a full-time Legislature are soldiering on despite Gov. Andrew Cuomo's declaration on Tuesday that there's "no appetite" to ban side jobs for the state's 213 lawmakers. "Everybody has got to be taking a look at how we make sure the public trust is restored. There are some pretty obvious ways - looking at outside income and limiting it is the most obvious," said Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins, leader of the chamber's mainstream Democratic conference. There seem to be 31 votes in the 63-seat chamber for such a proposal. Stewart-Cousins and her 24 colleagues have been pushing for a 15-percent cap on outside income (with some jobs banned outright) since February, and touted a multi-pronged plan during this year's legislative session as Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos was indicted by federal prosecutors. http://politi.co/1QVvKT0

NO CAPITOL RALLY - POLITICO New York's Eliza Shapiro Marking a significant shift in its lobbying strategy, the influential charter school advocacy group Families for Excellent Schools will not hold a political rally in Albany this legislative session for the first time since Mayor Bill de Blasio took office, several sources confirmed to POLITICO New York. A spokesperson for FES did not respond to requests for comment on Wednesday. But sources close to the charter school advocacy sector said the group was no longer getting policy results from the costly rallies. FES has indeed seen diminishing returns on its rallies, all of which have sought to boost charter schools and critique de Blasio. http://politi.co/1IpHeLI
-- NYPD STATS SHOW 38,000 HIT AND RUNS THIS YEAR -POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: There have been 38,000 hit-and-run incidents in New York City so far this year, according to a high-ranking NYPD official who testified before the City Council on Wednesday.

The $50-a-ticket Friday fundraiser will take place at Serafina Bar at the Time hotel. "This is a busy time of year for us all, but what better way to kick off the holiday festivities," said Quinn. "I hope to see you there!" http://politi.co/1l9J6hH

UBER STUDY IS LATE -- Transportation veteran currently drafting -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: The de Blasio administration has asked Bruce Schaller, a former city transportation official and widely acknowledged expert, to draft the report, according to knowledgeable sources. The report is likely to be released this month, city officials said. It is expected to find that Uber plays at least some role in Manhattan congestion. It's not clear, however, that Uber plays as pivotal a role in clogging Manhattan streets as the de Blasio administration originally believed.http://politi.co/1NpKoLk
-- The possibilities: The $2 million study is trying to determine whether Uber and other for-hire vehicles have caused worsening congestion in Manhattan and was commissioned after a fight between the car service and the administration earlier this year. As it prepares its report, City Hall is weighing a variety of recommendations, including requiring Uber and other for-hire car services to pay a surcharge. People familiar with the matter say the administration doesn't want another long fight with the company, which opposed its plans to impose a cap this year.

CITY-FUNDED TENANTS GROUP SUES BROOKLYN DEVELOPMENT - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: A tenants' rights advocacy group funded by the city's Human Resources Administration and a neighborhood group are suing the owner of Fulton Park Plaza, a massive Mitchell-Lama development in Brooklyn, charging the owner has failed to make repairs on the building despite receiving a federal loan to help pay for them...The lawsuit is being paid for with new money allocated under Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration to pay for legal services to help prevent eviction and tenant harassment. Under de Blasio, funding for tenant protection services has increased from $6.5 million annually in the final year of the Bloomberg Administration to more than $60 million next year. http://politi.co/1Px472B

IT'S ALL RELATIVE-"Here's what big NYC developers spent to keep EB-5 alive," by Real Deal's E.B. Solomont: "If a program gave a developer $600 million in cheap financing, how much would the developer spend fighting for its right to exist? In 2015, the Related Companies spent at least $730,000 in lobbying fees related to the viability of the EB-5 visa program, according to data from OpenSecrets.org, a website that tracks lobbying expenses and campaign finance, created by the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics. EB-5 offers foreign investors a green card in exchange for a $500,000 minimum investment in the U.S. economy." http://bit.ly/1Qgi0kb
PIECE OF HISTORY-"A Wall Street Landmark Seen by Millions, but Often Overlooked," by Times' David W. Dunlap: "One of New York's greatest historical landmarks, Federal Hall National Memorial, can be defined by what it is not. It is not widely enough known. It is not well enough visited. And it is not Federal Hall. ... Of the estimated 15 million visitors who pass through the crossroads every year, only 200,000 enter Federal Hall National Memorial, even though it is free and open eight hours each weekday. Its solemn inscrutability is a problem that the memorial's advocates have wrestled with for as long as I've covered landmarks." http://nyti.ms/1IFnyhD
