Cuomo was set to receive a $25,000 pay raise in 2021, which would have brought his salary to $250,000, but deferred it. The increase would have taken effect on Jan. 1, 2021, according to a resolution passed by the state Senate and Assembly in 2019.
The $25,000 increase was part of a three-year pay increase of $71,000, according to Open The Books.
