In 2006, Dan Moul (R-Adams) was elected to represent the citizens of the 91st Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
A strong advocate for government reform, Moul is fighting for meaningful tax, regulatory and welfare reforms, commonsense budgeting and measures to protect the safety and welfare of Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable citizens – children, the elderly and disabled.
Moul, who grew up on a farm in rural Adams County, is in his second term as chairman of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, a committee on which he previously served for several years. He also serves on the House Tourism and Recreational Development Committee. These committees address important legislation aimed at enhancing Pennsylvania’s leading industries – agriculture and tourism.
As state representative of the district that includes the Gettysburg battlefields and related tourist attractions, Moul has served on the House Tourism and Recreational Development Committee since taking office. In this role, he is responsible for laws to enhance funding for tourism promotion and legislation to protect landowners who permit free, public use of their land for recreational purposes.
Moul previously chaired the House Local Government Committee, and served as vice chairman of the House Children and Youth Committee, where he was instrumental in strengthening state laws to protect children from sexual predators and other forms of child abuse. In 2008, he championed a law to permit the extradition of deadbeat parents who leave Pennsylvania to avoid paying child support. Moul’s bill also increased the penalties for willful non-payment of court-ordered support. In 2017, the Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children honored Moul with its Champion for Children award in recognition of his support for child protection.
Moul also previously served as vice chairman of the House Game and Fisheries Committee.
Prior to being elected to the House, Moul spent 20 years as owner operator of his own real estate management and renovation business. Before that he worked in the sales division of Hanover-based Utz Quality Foods.
A lifelong resident of Adams County, Moul is a graduate of New Oxford High School, and he studied finance at York College. He was a member of “People Who Care Inc.,” a nonprofit charitable organization in Adams County dedicated to helping people in their time of need. For many years, he has supported the Boy Scouts of America Battlefield District of the New Birth of Freedom Council. He is also a member of A.B.A.T.E, Mason-Dixon chapter, and participates in its annual Christmas for Kids program and efforts in support of the Gettysburg Monuments project.
Moul and his wife Lori live in Conewago Township, Adams County. They have two adult children and five grandchildren.
