Surrogacy becomes legal in the state of Washington

Above the Law has the story:

Washington State Flips Its Anti-Surrogacy Stance
"Following the trend of jurisdictions named after our first president, Washington State just enacted into law a comprehensive new Uniform Parentage Act, effective January 1, 2019. While the state had previously allowed altruistic surrogacy — the type where you don’t get paid and where it’s really hard to find a very nice person willing to be pregnant for you for free — the Super Surrogacy-Friendly New Law (not its official name), eliminated the previous state ban on compensated surrogacy."

And here's the Act itself (although not in a format that makes it easy to read...)
