CARSON CITY (AP)– The economic gloom that marked the start of Nevada’s 2009 legislative session didn’t seem to faze lobbyists, who spent $57,996 on food and drinks at dinners, receptions and other events during February.

The February 2009 spending included $56,717 on group events, and another $1,278 on individual legislators.
