Why doesn't the City get the State to change its laws?

The City has lobbied hard in the last couple of years to get a number of state laws which relate to these matters changed. This past year we finally had a minor success in getting the tax deeding law improved slightly. However, in spite of our attempts to change the current RSA 155-B state law to require that insurance proceeds be spent first on property cleanup, opposition by the various realtor organizations has successfully forestalled any progress in this area. We of course will be trying again in the next legislative session.
