The secretary of state files and certifies the authenticity of a wide variety of official documents. These include special laws, judicial oaths, Gubernatorial Proclamations, Delegation/Rescission of Authority and executive orders; the enrolled acts of the Minnesota Legislature; rules; business trusts; and some municipal documents.
These documents are public records and available for public inspection and purchase. Note: While certain types of documents may have a statutory requirement that they be filed with the secretary of state, this office has no statutory authority to seek out documents that have not been filed.
