With the deadline for federal spending cuts arriving, state agencies are still in the dark about how the cuts would affect them specifically.

There has been some confusion at the state level surrounding the potential $85 billion in automatic budget cuts that will begin Friday unless President Barack Obama and Congress stop them. Many agencies that receive funding from the federal government say they're still unsure of how soon they would see a reduction in funding, how much money they would lose and how they would handle the cuts.

Executive Director Jeffery Blake of the Covered Bridge Special Education District in Terre Haute says he's waiting for direction from the government on what to do. Indiana could lose funding for 150 teachers, aides and staff who help children with disabilities.
