Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. This website is one of the ways I provide to better serve you, the residents of Wisconsin’s 2nd Senate District.

On this site, you will find:

  • My background and major legislative accomplishments;
  • A tool to track bills authored by myself or my colleagues;
  • Some ways I may help you in the ‘Constituent Services’ tab;
  • A sign-up for the Updates from the State Senate email list;
  • And much, much more!

If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, I encourage you to visit the ‘Contact Us’ tab. I enjoy hearing from those I proudly represent, and anyone with questions, comments, or concerns to contact me.

Through your input and involvement and my hard work, we will continue to make the 2nd Senate District an even better place to call home.

Yours Truly,


Robert Cowles
Proudly Serving Wisconsin's 2nd Senate District

  • Cowles’ Bills to Combat Child Neglect and Hire Heroes Pass Senate "Study after study has concluded that children exposed to abuse or neglect are at a greatly increased risk for future emotional or behavioral problems. I’ve authored this bill to try and combat this problem by closing the loophole that puts these kids at risk and protect more vulnerable children."
  • Audit Recommends Improved IT Security for STAR “The GAAP deficit decrease and is moving us in the right direction. However, the deficiencies in IT security is concerning. As a state, we need to improve the oversight and security confidence in our technology programs.”
