A county, home rule charter city, statutory city, town, school district, or other political subdivision, including a joint powers entity operating under section 471.59, may not create a corporation, whether for profit or not for profit, unless explicitly authorized to do so by law.
A joint powers entity created under section 471.59 may incorporate itself as a nonprofit under chapter 317A. A corporation created under this subdivision shall comply with every law that applies to the participating political subdivisions and shall possess no greater authority or power than that held by the joint powers entity itself.
