There is hereby established in the custody of the State Treasurer a fund to be used for the payment of claims against the State arising out of tort. No money shall be withdrawn from such fund unless the claim has been settled according to law or reduced to final judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction. Whenever any tort claim or claim for indemnification shall have been settled according to law or reduced to final judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction, the same shall be certified by the Attorney General or his designee, to the State Treasurer who shall pay the claim upon the warrant of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting out of moneys contained in the fund. Whenever the State Treasurer shall determine that funds are unavailable to pay any such claim, he shall certify the amount of such deficiency and the amount so certified shall be appropriated and paid to the claimant in the manner aforesaid.
