POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Nuclear Matters: CUOMO on a bigger stage -- CAR WASH regulation delayed -- BRATTON off message

11/20/2015 06:47 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, and Mike Allen in D.C., with Daniel Lippman

CUOMO's MORE NATIONAL POSITIONING - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Technically, it was Gov. Andrew Cuomo who feted Hillary Clinton on Thursday night. The Democratic governor greeted the former secretary of state with a kiss, presenting her with an award named after his father, Mario Cuomo, as the applause of hundreds who gathered for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence gala echoed off marble columns of Cipriani's Broadway location. Under pressure from groups like the National Rifle Association, Cuomo promised, "Hillary Clinton will stand strong by her word, her convictions and her principles."

Clinton declared herself "honored" by both the award and its presenter, noting the presence of Matilda Cuomo, the mother of the state's 56th governor and widow of its 52nd. "Of course, his father was not just a great man but a good one whose powerful conscience served as a reminder to us all that sometimes you have to do the right thing-in politics and in life," Clinton declared. After the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, "Congress may have let us down, but Andrew Cuomo did not."

-Vivian Yee in the Times: "In his first term as New York's governor, Cuomo gained a reputation as a centrist, a pragmatic politician who, to the consternation of members of his own party, dealt as readily with Republicans as with Democrats. But as Governor Cuomo, a Democrat, nears the end of his fifth year in office, he appears to be embracing what he says is his inner progressive. He turned heads in left-leaning circles last week during a whirlwind three-day blitz, when Mr. Cuomo scored a liberal hat trick. On Thursday, he heartened environmentalists by rejecting a proposal to build the state's first port for liquefied natural gas off the coast of Long Island. The day before, he surprised advocates of medical marijuana by signing two bills to allow sick New Yorkers in urgent need of the drug to receive it two months ahead of the statewide scheduled start, just days after signaling a lack of enthusiasm for the emergency program."

DE BLASIO ON SURROGATE DUTY -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: Hillary Clinton changed her tune ever so slightly, arguing that America must in fact "lead" the "worldwide fight" against ISIS. She explained how she would do that, in great detail, in a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations, on Manhattan's Upper East Side. In the life of a presidential candidacy, it was a reasonably big moment, especially following last week's attacks in Paris. And Mayor Bill de Blasio, her newfound supporter, was there to hear it, learn from it and then go on surrogate duty after she finished. During the speech, Clinton outlined a three-pronged strategy for defeating ISIS: defeating ISIS in the Middle East, disrupting the terrorists' "infrastructure" around the world, and hardening the United States' defenses and those of its allies against external and homegrown threats.

During the speech, de Blasio took notes. After the speech, de Blasio spoke briefly with Clinton. Then, he repaired to the sidewalk beneath a scaffold to talk with the press. "She is right to say there should be no substantial force of boots on the ground in this conflict, no American boots on the ground, because that would counterproductive. ... That's literally what ISIS wants, and we cannot give that to them."

RELATED: Clinton opposes having large number of soldiers on the ground in Syria, but is "opening the door to a bigger, and accelerated, role in the region." NYT editorial:

-- "De Blasio: Tech companies 'must be held accountable' for encryption" -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarh:

-- "Bill de Blasio Won't Guarantee There Are No ISIS Affilates in NYC" -- Observer's Will Bredderman:

CAR WASH LAW AT RISK -- City agrees to hold off implementation -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: As part of an ongoing lawsuit against the city, Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration has agreed to hold off implementing a law to regulate the city's car wash industry. The lawsuit was filed last month by the Association of Car Wash Owners - a group representing about 90 car wash businesses across the city who allege the recently approved law meant to protect low-wage workers actually illegally favors unions.

As part of the ongoing litigation, the city has agreed to hold off on the implementation of the law which was expected to begin this December. In the meantime, the Department of Consumer Affairs will draft and promulgate the new set of regulations set to govern the car wash industry which will include rules about how car washes should dispose of the chemicals they use and worker safety. "The parties have agreed that it makes more sense to wait until the city promulgates the rules that implement the carwash law before proceeding in the litigation," said Nick Paolucci, a spokesman for the city's law department. Michael Cardozo, a lawyer representing the car wash owners said the delay in implementing the law makes him increasingly confident the owners will beat the city in the case.

BROADWAY BUZZ -- "Hold onto your helicopter: 'Miss Saigon' returns to Broadway," by AP's Mark Kennedy: "That familiar sound of thwak, thwak, thwak is coming back to Broadway - the musical 'Miss Saigon,' complete with iconic helicopter, will land in New York again. Mega-producer Cameron Mackintosh said Thursday that the current West End revival will jump over from London with its two stars and 40-person cast, appearing in the spring of 2017 at a Shubert theater to be named later."

MEDIA MORNING -- "John Heilemann and Mark Halperin Ponder Game-Changing Deal With MSNBC," by New York Mag's Gabe Sherman: "[A]s the presidential-election season heats up, [NBC News chairman Andy] Lack is looking to give a show to the campaign chroniclers John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. ... Lack is in talks with Bloomberg Television to simulcast Heilemann and Halperin's politics show With All Due Respect on MSNBC. One scenario being discussed is to air WADR at 6 p.m., filling the slot formerly occupied by Al Sharpton. The novel programming arrangement would conceivably benefit both sides. Heilemann and Halperin would gain access to a far larger audience than ratings-challenged Bloomberg TV provides. ... When asked about the deal, Heilemann said: 'I can't talk to you about any such thing.'"

SKELOS SOUGHT FAVORS - POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez: Between December 2010 and July 2012, then-Senate majority leader Dean Skelos asked executives at real estate giant Glenwood Management to help find work for his son, Adam, at least half a dozen times, Charles Dorego, the company's executive vice president and general counsel, testified Thursday. After retaking the Senate in the 2010 elections with the help of the real estate industry's contributions, the elder Skelos met with Dorego, Glenwood's founder Leonard Litwin and other Glenwood executives in December to thank them for their support. "We were celebrating the victory," Dorego said. As the 2011 legislative session approached with Skelos in control of the Republican majority in the Senate, rent regulations and the 421-a tax abatement, a key subsidy for developers, were set to expire.

-- Emails and wiretaps show the easy relationship between Glenwood officials and Senate Republicans looking to raise campaign cash. [$]

-- Here are the best recorded conversations.

-- Members of the chamber's Independent Democratic Conference issued a statement responding to Skelos' belittling comments, as captured by the wiretap.

-- Attorneys for former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver argued Thursday on behalf of an acquittal motion filed with the court the day after the government rested its corruption case in Manhattan federal court.

OFF MESSAGE -- Bratton says de Blasio was slow to recognize homeless issue -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: During a panel discussion sponsored by the Manhattan Institute, New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton told the audience the administration had made a mistake early on by not validating the issue of homelessness. "The problem was increasing and so, for a period of time, [they were] not admitting what everybody was seeing and feeling, including myself, in my neighborhood," Bratton said. Bratton's remarks were made in the presence of a senior advisor to the mayor, Phil Walzak, who joined the commissioner on the panel. Bratton also discussed the challenges of dealing with homeless people who may be emotionally disturbed or on drugs. "It is not easy," Bratton said.

The remarks were the latest example of the unusual, and sometimes headache-inducing, relationship between the freshman mayor and the veteran police commissioner. De Blasio has long relied on Bratton to drive down crime and protect his administration from criticism that safety and quality of life would decline under his watch. His success in public safety has enabled de Blasio to focus on delivering other elements of his progressive agenda, like creating a free, pre-kindergarten program citywide, and traveling the country to discuss national issues.

City Hall's response: De Blasio press secretary Karen Hinton said the mayor is working aggressively to combat homelessness. She did not directly address Bratton's criticisms of the administration. In a statement, she said, "The Mayor is moving aggressively to tackle this problem head-on. This week, he announced the boldest plan any administration has offered - $2.6 billion for 15,000 units of supportive housing ... The Mayor increased other homeless programs by $1 billion over four years..."

-- Flashback: "There's no requirement that things are run by his office to approve before I do them." -- Bratton to the WSJ in September.

-- Post headline: "De Blasio was wrong to deny homeless problem, Bratton says" --

-- News' lede: "The city's top cop said Mayor de Blasio's administration made a 'mistake' by not immediately acknowledging a spike in the street homelessness that has 'exploded' in recent years."

MALLOY QUIETLY ENGINEERED A GIANT TAX FAVOR FOR GE - Hartford Courant's Dan Haar: "With the crisis over General Electric's possible exit from Connecticut exploding into national news, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has quietly engineered a very large tax favor for the Fairfield-based company. The favor was buried in the 702-page tax 'implementer' bill that lawmakers passed at the end of June with just a few hours to look over before the fiscal year ended. It could be worth tens of millions of dollars; there is no official estimate because it gives tax benefits to GE for many years. Now the question is whether it will help GE keep its headquarters in Connecticut. Malloy is proposing changes to the measure as part of his bill to close this year's budget gap - which could make it even sweeter."

REAL ESTATE -- POLITICS IN HOUSING-"Talks said to be improving between city, state on housing bonds," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Every year, New York City officials rely on a stream of federally tax-exempt bonds to fund their affordable housing projects. The money, which flows through the state, has been so reliable that developers, housing experts and City Hall officials were shocked to learn a week ago that it was in jeopardy, despite the ongoing feud between Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.

"One source in the affordable housing sector did say he had worried for months that the bonds would become a casualty of the public dispute, but most said the news came as a surprise. The bonds, part of a program known in housing parlance as 'volume cap,' are included in an annual allocation authorized by the federal government and divvied up by the governor to municipalities throughout the state. They pay for housing, public works and industrial development projects."

COMING ON LINE-"Amazon inks lease at Liberty View complex," by Real Deal's Ariel Stulberg: "E-commerce leviathan Amazon plans to open a distribution outpost at Salmar Properties' massive Liberty View Industrial Plaza in Sunset Park. The company signed a seven-year lease, with a renewal option for two additional five-year terms, at the 1.1 million-square-foot complex, according to a memorandum of lease dated Oct. 26. The size of the space is not clear."

POOR PERFORMANCE-"Affordable Home Ownership Program More Effective Under Bloomberg: Records," by DNAinfo's Gustavo Solis: "A city-run affordable housing program that provides a pathway to home ownership for low income New Yorkers has stalled under Mayor Bill de Blasio, records show. The Tenant-Interim-Lease (TIL) program was designed to renovate city-owned buildings and train tenants to manage finances and perform maintenance (that) allows residents to buy their apartments for $250. In practice, however, few buildings have converted to tenant control."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Lightning 2, Rangers 1: Not a fun one. Valtteri Flippula scored a short-handed goal with just over a minute left in regulation.

-- St. John's came back from 16 down in the second half to beat Rutgers, 61-59, in men's basketball.

-- The day ahead: the Knicks are in Oklahoma City. The Nets head to Boston. The Islanders host the Canadiens. Columbia men's basketball faces Northwestern.
