363A.16 CREDIT DISCRIMINATION.

Subdivision 1.Personal or commercial credit.

It is an unfair discriminatory practice to discriminate in the extension of personal or commercial credit to a person, or in the requirements for obtaining credit, because of race, color, creed, religion, disability, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, or marital status, or due to the receipt of federal, state, or local public assistance including medical assistance.

Subd. 2.Personal or commercial credit; tenant on assistance.

It is an unfair discriminatory practice to discriminate in the extension of personal or commercial credit against any person who is a tenant receiving federal, state, or local housing subsidies, including rental assistance or rent supplements because the person is a recipient of those subsidies or assistance.

Subd. 3.Credit card issuer.

It is an unfair discriminatory practice for a credit card issuer to refuse to issue a credit card to a woman under her current or former surname unless there is an intent to defraud or mislead, except that a credit card issuer may require that a woman requesting a card under a former surname open a separate account in that name. A credit card issuer may also require disclosure of any other names under which the credit card applicant may have a credit history.
