AP - State carpenters and painters spent more than 50 hours building an elaborate prop for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to use to promote his plan to curb state spending, a practice the head of a public watchdog group denounced as a waste of government resources.

Schwarzenegger appeared in front of a 25-foot model of the Capitol at the state fairgrounds in Sacramento last month to turn a spigot and shut off the flow of red ink he said symbolizes state spending.

"You're wasting government resources to highlight the waste of government resources," said Larry Noble, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics in Washington.
