Weights and Measures Week is celebrated on March 1-7 each year to commemorate John Adams signing the first United States weights and measures law on March 2, 1799. Here in Minnesota, the Commerce Department’s Weights and Measures Division became the state’s first consumer protection agency in 1885.
Consumer Protection is our number one priority here at the Department of Commerce. In honor of National Consumer Protection Week, we are reminding you of all the ways we can help you make the most out of your money. A stable and secure financial future starts with one smart decision at a time.
America Saves Week is a great opportunity to identify the big and small ways to save for your long-term goals.

Money matters can be a complicated, emotional subject. You may know that you need to get your finances in order but don’t know where to start.
