Minnesota Department of Commerce (DOC) is the state's chief regulator for the banking, energy, insurance, real estate, residential construction, securities, and telecommunications industries. They are concerned with the health of the individual companies as well as making sure consumers' interests are protected. MN DOC operates Minnesota's Unclaimed Property program and administers the state Petrofund as well as Minnesota Relay, which provides deaf, hard-of-hearing and speech-impaired citizens access to telecommunications services. By providing a fair and consistent regulatory environment, and by encouraging the growth of competition, they are allowing the people of Minnesota to build a healthy economic base that will serve communities and citizens across the state for years to come.
