Amends Section 3 of SL 2010-61 to allow Alamance and Orange counties to maintain the current taxing, elections, education, and other government functions until July 1, 2012 (was, 2011).
Amends Section 4 of SL 2010-61 to direct all papers, documents, and instruments required or permitted to be filled or registered, involving residents and property affected by the resurvey of the boundary line to be recorded in the county to which the property has been reassigned by this act (previously, to which the property has been annexed), on and after January 1, 2012 (was, on and after July 1, 2011). Deletes provisions of Section 4(c) in SL 2010-61, which detail taxation terms and conditions for the adjoining counties, and replaces with a new, similar Section 4(c), to extend applicable dates, as detailed. States that no cause of action involving persons or property located in areas affected by the resurvey that is pending on July 1, 2012 (was, 2011) will be abated, and will continue in the appropriate adjoining county. Also prohibits a defense to a criminal act that alleges a lack of jurisdiction due to the boundary line adjustment, regardless of when the criminal act allegedly occurred.

Releases the counties from any liability resulting from the uncertain boundary line.
Amends Section 8 of SL 2010-61 to state that the counties will not be responsible for the resurvey costs; however, the transitioned property owners will be responsible.
States that this act controls if in conflict with SL 2010-61.
Provides that any boundary line between the counties previously surveyed, recognized, adopted, described, utilized, or ratified is modified as specified in this act.
