Veto Halts Bill for Jury Duty by Noncitizens in California

Wow!  Another whiff of sanity from CA.  Too bad it's just a whiff and not a tornado.
But the governor drew the line at allowing legal immigrants to serve on juries. “Jury service, like voting, is quintessentially a prerogative and responsibility of citizenship,” Mr. Brown said in a brief veto message. “This bill would permit lawful permanent residents who are not citizens to serve on a jury. I don’t think that’s right.”
