I guess this is the Democrat idea of containing the Tech Companies monopoly power.
Let them create their own MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENTS.
Giving Bezos and Zuckerberg et al, power to arrest, try, and imprison I guess.
Instead of just getting suspended you might get extradited to Twitter City to stand trial for your "terms of service" violations.

CARSON CITY, NEV. (AP) — Planned legislation to establish new business areas in Nevada would allow technology companies to effectively form separate local governments.
Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak announced a plan to launch so-called Innovation Zones in Nevada to jumpstart the state’s economy by attracting technology firms, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday.
The zones would permit companies with large areas of land to form governments carrying the same authority as counties, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts and courts and provide government services.

Nevada's trailblazing work with whorehouse ranches laid the foundation for this effort.

I trust pimps and prostitutes more than Big Tech. At least sex workers want to make a buck above all and satisfy the customer; Big Tech cares more about controlling the customer.

No real difference from company towns of yore.

As an added benefit, they can sell their bonds as municipal securities.

This was my first thought.

But I think the state's thinking was that it might atteact business, and in those areas the state (and or local) juristriction does not have to provide any services.

You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me, 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

This is the first step towards the world Neal Stephenson imagined in his groundbreaking novel “Snow Crash.” In that world, the USA federal government is largely powerless, and corporations run their independent fiefdoms by their own corporatist rules, for the benefit and protection of their own customers... and of course their shareholders. Competition for customers with money to spend keeps them from abusing their own.

The New Deal was all about stopping this from ever happening again in the future.

Will these towns have all of the 'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas' legal immunities from prosecution?
