Cuomo said such cuts would reduce support for hospitals, nursing homes and 7 million New Yorkers who rely on the program. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)

And that's the prediction of Cuomo, its main champion, who called the plan a "model for the nation." (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File)

Cuomo, who plans to use the car for ceremonial occasions, such as the scheduled 2018 opening of the new Tappan Zee Bridge, says the repairs will not alter the paint, wheels or upholstery, and will instead focus on basic preservation.
