PHOTOS: Special session continues as hearings and floor sessions move into the evening

With the budget hole still not filled, the special session in Carson City slogged through Day 8.

The halls are still mostly empty, and the chambers are still covered with protective plexiglass and face-mask clad lawmakers.

The Nevada Independent’s David Calvert was in the building again to preserve the action for posterity.

Here are some photos he captured:
