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


  • 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.”
  • Senate Committee Passes Amended Wetland Reform Bill "While this legislation underwent several iterations, the Senate Substitute Amendment constitutes the greatest balance between conservation and community growth. This conciliation represents a step forward in wetlands regulations for everyone."
  • Audit Recommends UW System Address Continued IT Weaknesses “The audit confirmed that the financial strength within the UW System is reassuring, but the audit shows that more work is to be done within the UW. IT security is critical, and I look forward to working with my colleagues and the leadership of the UW to address this vital issue."
