Governor Andrew Cuomo tapped two former political rivals Wednesday to help bring tax relief to the state.

Cuomo named former Governor George Pataki and former State Comptroller Carl McCall as heads of his new tax-cutting commission.

Pataki beat Mario Cuomo in 1994 to become governor, and Andrew Cuomo mounted a primary challenge to McCall, who lost the race for governor to Pataki in 2002.

The commission's top priority is looking at ways to reduce property taxes.

It's expected to release its report and recommendation by this December so it can included in Cuomo's State of the State agenda in January.
