An executive order issued by Sebelius on Thursday lists a few specific institutions. They include hospitals for the developmentally disabled; state schools for the deaf and blind; a juvenile corrections center in Beloit; and the Rainbow Mental Health Facility in Kansas City, Kan.
Sebelius spokeswoman Nicole Corcoran says the panel can study other institutions as well.
The governor and legislative leaders will appoint the commission's 11 voting members. Three Cabinet secretaries and the commissioners of education and juvenile justice will serve as nonvoting members.
Sebelius ordered the commission to draft recommendations by Dec. 1.
