The Democratic National Committee plans to vote on a resolution Friday afternoon to reverse a ban on fossil fuel company donations just two months after adopting the prohibition in a unanimous vote, HuffPost has learned.

“I am furious that the DNC would effectively undo a resolution passed just two months ago just as the movement to ban fossil fuel corporate PAC money is growing (and Democrats are winning),” R.L. Miller, a party activist who co-sponsored the original resolution, said.
The DNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
