A statute of Minnesota denying to all foreign corporations the right to maintain any action in the courts of the State unless they have previously obtained a certificate of authority to do business within the State, for which a filing fee of $5.00 plus an initial license fee of $50.00 is exacted -- held valid as applied to a federally licensed customhouse broker whose business was localized in the State, and not in conflict with existing federal laws and regulations relating to customhouse brokers or with the commerce clause of the Constitution. Pp. 322 U. S. 207, 322 U. S. 212.
