The National Health Care Workforce Commission was established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which became law in 2010 and was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012. The commission was designed to be an expert resource for Congress and other policymakers. But the 15-member body has never met, due to lack of funding. And if it does not receive federal funding of some sort, it may never meet.
