The state senator who cut millions of dollars from homeless shelters now supports the funding, if there's an audit of how it s spent.

Embattled State Senator Jan Angel says she'll support a homeless bill similar to the one she killed last week.

We had a bill that the Department of Commerce had not done their reporting. We had a bill that we don't have accurate data that we're aware of, she said.

At a Senate hearing last Thursday, Angel abruptly stopped the meeting with the pound of her gavel, even though her colleagues had reached a compromise.

The bill would have funded millions of dollars for state homeless shelter by keeping in place a $40 fee on people who buy a new home.
