Tallahassee, FL (WTXL) - Florida Lawmakers will be taking the week off this week for the Easter and Passover holiday. They will return to the capitol on April 21st for two frantic weeks before session comes to a close on May 2nd.

There will be little activity at the Capitol during the coming week. Some issues that still will get some attention over the break include property taxes, tax day, and the topic of curbing lion fish. 

On Monday, the state's Revenue Estimating Conference will analyze ad valorem and property taxes. On Tuesday members of the Main Street Growth & Opportunity Coalition-Florida, will hold a media conference call to discuss tax day. And on Wednesday, the Florida Wildlife and Conservation Committee will be looking at the necessity of curbing the lion fish species.
