This was new language inserted to the previous version of the statutes with the Governor’s signature on the amendment bill making the new bill law as of May 15th, 2004 at 9:45 PM. (You can verify that by scrolling to the bottom).

The new requirement is you must have at least three years experience out of the last five in order to take the brokers’ exam in the state of Minnesota.
