New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is appointing a new tax cutting commission that he’s charged with finding ways of slicing state revenues by $2 to $3 billion dollars next year.

Cuomo turned to the man who beat his father in the 1994 governor’s race, George Pataki, to co chair the commission. Pataki, a Republican, defeated Mario Cuomo  on a platform that included tax cuts.

Pataki, who says the state “spends too much and costs too much,” says he’s happy to serve on the commission, but at first thought a mistake had been made.
