Biographical or historical data
John E. Moss was born in 1913 and actively entered politics in 1938, when he became a member of the California State Democratic Central Committee. In 1948 he was elected to the California Assembly, representing the Ninth District, and served two terms. While a member of the Assembly, he sponsored legislation dealing with public employees, land use, housing, and lobbying. He was instrumental in changing the rules of the assembly to require that members of the Assembly Rules Committee be selected by election rather than appointment by the Speaker. After that rule change went into effect, Moss was elected to the Rules Committee. While in the Assembly, Moss served on many committees. In 1952, Moss was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for the Third District, where he served until 1979.
