(a) If the federal government enacts a law that provides for the discovery of unclaimed
property held by the federal government and that provides or makes that information
available to the states, the comptroller may pay to the federal government from the
unclaimed money received under this chapter or any other statute requiring the delivery
of unclaimed property to the comptroller the proportional share of the necessary cost
of examining records.
(b) If the federal government delivers unclaimed property to the comptroller, this
state shall hold the federal government harmless from claims made by owners of the
property after the delivery.
