The Minnesota Department of Commerce is a wildly powerful state agency. It regulates many industries: Real estate agents; appraisers; insurance agents; mortgage originators; and others. Whether in Duluth or Hugo, if you are in a regulated industry under Commerce's umbrella, you can be investigated by Commerce.
