CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has finished making decisions on bills approved by the 2013 Legislature.

Lawmakers passed 15 bills that were ultimately vetoed by Sandoval.

The Republican governor signed several bills Thursday, including one enabling Clark County to raise taxes to add police officers and another adding $2 million to the Gov. Guinn Millennium Scholarship program.

A third bill he signed deals with class-size reduction policies.

He vetoed bills including one that would have mandated universal background checks on gun purchases, and another to enact ward-based voting in Reno.
