INTENSIFYING BATTLE — With 10 days until a final agreement is due, advocacy groups are ramping up their efforts to include a $15 minimum wage in the state budget. Several nonprofit organizations, advocates and Democratic legislators are planning a rally outside the Senate chambers in the Capitol Tuesday calling for a $15 minimum wage. Organizations that serve the developmentally disabled have held press conferences in the Capitol in the last several weeks asking that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Legislature include at least $135 million in Medicaid funding in the budget to help offset the cost associated with the wage increases for their staff. Other health care providers have also called for the minimum wage to include some sort of funding to help with the sting of a rising wage for their employees. A coalition of health care providers, including the Home Care Association of New York State, LeadingAge New York, Healthcare Association of New York State, New York State Health Facilities Association, iissued a statement Monday saying it is important an increase in the minimum wage include a funding stream.

FINANCES — For New York City Health + Hospitals, the nation’s largest public hospital system, to survive on sound financial footing without relying on ever-growing cash subsidies from the de Blasio administration, it will need help from the state and federal governments, its CEO, Ram Raju, testified Monday before the City Council. The problem, according to Councilman Corey Johnson, chair of the health committee, is that neither the Cuomo administration nor the Obama administration seem particularly apt to change the rules in a way that would benefit Health + Hospitals' bottom line. http://politi.co/22AxHYh
HASA RALLY — HIV/AIDS activists rallied Monday afternoon on the steps of City Hall, calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to appropriate $70 million to help implement his own plan to end the AIDS epidemic by 2020. Advocates thought they had a commitment from Cuomo in November when he announced he would spend $200 million to support HIV/AIDS efforts. When the budget was introduced, however, the administration clarified that the $200 million would be spent over several years, and it wasn't lined out in this year's spending plan.
