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


  • Updates from the State Senate: Veterans Day This E-Newsletter includes information on legislative efforts to better serve veterans, progress on bill's I've authored in recent sessions, other key bills passed in recent sessions, a portion of a column I recently published, information on Capitol Christmas Tree decorations, and more.
  • Bill to Address Lead Laden Water One of Six Cowles’ Bills to Clear Assembly "Recognizing that each community is different and a one-size fits all solution will not work, the local control provided by this bill will help us to remove this aging, harmful water infrastructure. I am disappointed the Assembly was unable to concur with the unanimous decision of the Senate, but am optimistic that SB 48 will be passed in early 2018."
  • Senate Approves Cowles/Jacque Brownfields Reform Bill “Brownfields are a huge impediment in economic development. Senate Bill 173 rethinks the way we deal with brownfields. SB 173 will remove some of the hurdles faced by local governments and developers and will turn more blighted properties into productive developments that benefit the entire community."
