The moves kick off an intense two-week stretch as Cuomo and lawmakers try to agree on a budget deal by the deadline.
Cuomo's budget proposal includes giving tax rebates to homeowners in jurisdictions that meet the spending limit and then consolidate services to save money. Democrats in charge of the Assembly have rejected Cuomo's plan.
Cuomo promoted his plan at a Capitol news conference Monday with the county executives of Albany, Ulster, and Nassau counties.
Also Monday, the Senate and Assembly have begun a series of joint conference committee meetings to consider differences in the budget.
