RAPPLEYEA MUM ON REPORT HE MAY BE READY TO RESIGN

State Assembly Minority Leader Clarence Rappleyea, responding to a report he may be ready to resign, refused to say Monday if he would remain in the Legislature through this year's regular session.

The session generally ends in early July.

"I've made no determination on any of that," the Chenango County Republican said. His current term runs through 1996.

If there's a vacancy soon, Assemblyman Thomas Reynolds, R-Springville, is considered Rappleyea's likely successor as minority leader in the Democratic-controlled Assembly.

On Monday, the New York Post said Rappleyea might be up for the chairmanship of the New York Power Authority, a $68,330 part-time post.

"I've talked to people about a lot of jobs, but I'm still here," Rappleyea said when asked to comment.
