If the plastic ban measure is adopted by the Legislature, it would become effective in 2019.
His announcement came after Democratic rival Cynthia Nixon spoke at a rally protesting Cuomo's climate change policies on Monday.
Every year, NY residents use about 23 billion plastic bags, leading to litter and plastic pollution.
The legislation announced by Cuomo, a Democrat, would ban single-use plastic bags around the state, while blocking any local government regulation from imposing their own rules or fees.
"Energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way for New Yorkers to lower utility bills, curb harmful emissions and battle climate change", Governor Cuomo said.
"However, the evidence does not support a ban on plastic with no fee on paper bags", Cherson said in a statement.
Monday's proposal came as a result of a report in January by a task force that Mr. Cuomo convened past year after blocking the city bill.
Richard Azzopardi, a spokesman for Mr. Cuomo, said that the unveiling of the bill was related to the completion of work of the commission and its experts, not Ms. Nixon's candidacy.

Nixon, the Sex and the City star who is mounting a challenge on Cuomo's political left, was among those who marched. On Monday, Mr. Felder said that he had not had time to review the Cuomo bill but that his opposition had to do with fees and taxes, not a ban per se. "And also, plastic bags are made from fossil fuels".
The report was carried out by the New York State Plastic Bags Task Force in January.
Reynolds noted there has been progress toward meeting NY state's greenhouse gas emission reduction goals, but just investing in wind and solar won't be enough.
The ban also does not apply to plastic bags used for newspaper delivery; garment bags from the drycleaners and storage and garbage bags used in the home.
"The Governor has led the nation in combating climate change from banning fracking to one of the most aggressive clean energy standards in the country to closing down risky Indian Point to the single largest procurement of renewable energy in our nation's history and the first multi-state cap and trade system to lower carbon pollution", she said.
