New York’s state budget, now nearly a month late, could be closing in on a final agreement in the coming days, Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Tuesday.

Hochul, addressing reporters in Albany, said she was optimistic a plan can be in place by the end of the week.

“It’s been a long process,” Hochul said. “I do see a path to wrapping up the budget at the end of the week.”

State lawmakers and Hochul continue to discuss issues that would enable the state to address the sale of illegal cannabis sales in the state as well as expand charter schools in New York City.

The budget is expected to include a ban on new natural gas hookups by 2026 in new construction in the state.

Hochul on Tuesday said the measure was necessary to address climate change.

“But I’m also focused on affordability,” she said, adding there could be provisions to address the cost of making the transition for consumers and ratepayers.

Officials have previously agreed to changes to New York’s cashless bail law that would provide judges with more discretion in setting bail for criminal case.

Hochul’s housing plan was rejected by lawmakers, but she wants to continue pushing elements of it after the budget is given final approval in the remaining weeks of the session, she said.

Lawmakers and Hochul also have tentative deals for increasing the state’s minimum wage to $17 an hour in the coming years and funding universal free school meals.
