Here are the 70 programs cut from Bevin's budget

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - During his State of the Commonwealth address on Tuesday, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin announced he would cut 70 programs from the government budget.

For those targeted, the implications are hitting home.

The non-profit Heuser Hearing and Language Academy of Louisville has been helping children with hearing and language disabilities.

If cut off from state funding, the Academy will lose $100,000, or 10%, of its budget.

Heuser CEO Brett Bachmann said much of the state money is dedicated to maintaining the equipment that helps children hear and learn.

Without it, Bachmann said there will be delays in repairs and replacements, less monitoring and testing.

"We would not be able to do the rounds every single day, making sure their equipment is up and running every day," Bachmann said, "Because for every minute that a child is not in his educational atmosphere because he has no access to sound, she has no access to sound, that drastically impacts their educational benefit."

The Heuser Academy is just one of 70 stories.
