The 2009 Nevada Legislature adjourned early Tuesday, after weary lawmakers cobbled together last-minute compromises, overrode many of Gov. Jim Gibbons' record number of vetoes and shipped him dozens of Senate- and Assembly-approved bills.

Lawmakers also revived and approved part of a once-rejected proposal to roll back a voter-approved smoking ban in public places. An amendment tacked onto AB309, which deals with stalking, allows smoking at tobacco trade conventions.
