Public utilities are generally guaranteed a profit by law in exchange for state regulation. Might not be a bad deal for Google all things considered. Utility stocks and bonds are considered to be among the safest investments available. They seldom go bankrupt unless they do something really terrible like PG&E.

A problem I see is that regulating Google in only one state as a public utility while the rest of Google operates freely may not fly.

-Google should be ... subject to government regulation.

It already is. That's why you see so few results on Google Search now, and why so many of them are completely random and useless. It is already 'regulated' by government, 'regulated' being a euphemism for 'censored'.
