Nevada bill would allow tech companies to create governments

quote [ 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. ]

Lol, bringing back the slavery of Company Towns as "innovation."
