Anne Rapkin says that when Gov. John Rowland took over the Connecticut statehouse, the word came down. The Department of Environmental Protection was going to be a kinder, gentler, more “business friendly” operation. But not, perhaps, if you’re the DEP’s chief lawyer and your advice is to follow the law as written. Rapkin has sued her former bosses, claiming they tried to muzzle her on issues of health and environmental protection under the Rowland regime. Who’ll have the last word, a jury or the voters?
