The PCLOB only has one of the five members it needs to be fully operational. Without its full set of members, the PCLOB cannot monitor the nation's surveillance apparatus, send reports to Congress, or hold public meetings. Its dire situation may also be a major blow to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement, as the group was slated to be a check on U.S. surveillance of European citizens.
