It is easier to do things here because it is a small state. There are certainly more rich and famous in say California and New York, but New York could increase its liberty rating by 30% and still be worst in the country. New Hampshire has the largest state legislative body in the country, and pays them $100/year (plus mileage). But our state motto is "Live Free or Die" and we take it seriously - if you want to die because of not wearing a seatbelt that is your choice. Getting federal funding is not very important compared to our liberty.

Yes it is often hard to get laws against things because politicians do not want to get caught. We recently outlawed using cellphones in a very restrictive law that I certainly hope is repealed before it goes into effect next year. We do not require seat belts or motor cycle helmets, but have fairly widespread use of each. But as to privacy we are very strict. Some of the world's experts on privacy live here too.
New Hampshire has its elected officials, like any other state.  So, I 
can't image the elected ones are behind the increased privacy. Unless NH 
politicians are so far "ahead of the curve" compared to politicians in 
other states?
Or, there could be a "secret society" that largely runs NH & wants 
better privacy?

Surely, NH doesn't have any more powerful visitors than say, 
Connecticut, Hawaii, Washington DC or several others?

"Don't require seat belts?"  Kinda behind times, isn't it?  Does NH 
allow "new fangled motorized automobiles" on the streets? :D Aren't seat 
belts a federal requirement, or if not, doesn't a state choosing not to 
require them, lose a whole lot of federal funding? "New Hampshire - The 
Live Fast & Die Hard State."...  hee-hee
