Only a few governments have the authority to do something like that: China, North Korea, Cuba, maybe a few other little guys, none of which are currently big competitors in AI.  Constitutionally limited governments generally do not have even theoretically that level of authority, the US government definitely doesn’t have that level of authority, nor does any state, county or city within the USA that I know of.  Such a proposal as Eliezer’s coming from an American surprises me.
