    The Trump Administration Is Scuttling a Rule That Would Save People From Dying of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    It took 16 years and more than 1,000 deaths for the Consumer Products Safety Commission to crack down on deadly portable generators. Trump’s appointees could undo that in a matter of months.
