The looming sequester cuts that Democrats and Republicans are still arguing about are set to take effect at the end of the week.
The cuts, if they happen, will mean Colorado schools could lose more than $8 million in funding, jeopardizing 120 teacher and teachers' aide jobs.
700 children could lose access to the Head Start program.
12,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed.
Additionally, the state would lose $750,000 that fund meals for seniors. Reporter Dave Young has more about that in the video clip above.
