If any city, county, or city and county exercises its authority to address public
health, safety, or welfare issues in connection with a cemetery within its jurisdiction
and if the certificate of authority of the cemetery has been revoked or suspended
or has not been renewed, and the bureau holds the endowment care fund of the certificate
of authority under applicable provisions of this code, the costs of any action that
constitutes care, maintenance, or embellishment of the cemetery within the meaning
of Section 8726 of the Health and Safety Code shall be eligible for reimbursement from available income from any endowment care
fund in existence for the cemetery. For purposes of this section, local jurisdiction action may be based on charter,
ordinance, or inherent police powers. Any claim for money or damages for an act or omission by the local jurisdiction
acting in accord with this section shall be subject to all otherwise applicable immunities
contained in Division 3.6 (commencing with Section 810) of Title 1 of the Government Code.
