CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The 2013 Nevada Legislature has adjourned, ending a four-month session that will be remembered for the expulsion of a troubled lawmaker, historic votes on gay marriage, gun control and unrealized ambitions of tax reform.
Everything came to a halt at midnight, with some bills apparently getting lost in the mad dash before adjournment. A statement from the governor's office indicated that a special session would take place early Tuesday, as soon as an official proclamation could be issued.
The session began Feb. 4 and was limited to 120 days. The first weeks dealt with the expulsion of Steven Brooks, who became the first legislator expelled in Nevada after a string of public incidents and arrests.
Lawmakers debated taxes, took aim at mining, but failed in the end to pass tax reform.
