Brown -- who recently approved bills allowing immigrants who are in the country illegally to obtain driver's permits and the ability to practice law -- said immigrants who are not U.S. citizens should not be selected for jury duty, the Los Angeles Times reported.
"Jury service, like voting, is quintessentially a prerogative and responsibility of citizenship," Brown wrote in his 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."
No U.S. states allow non-citizens to serve on juries.
Brown also vetoed legislation requiring city managers and city council members to undergo financial-management training, citing the cost to the state and suggesting cities pay for the training themselves.
