Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley introduced bipartisan legislation Wednesday to end America’s dependence on overseas oil.  Republican, Maine Senator Olympia Snowe co-sponsored the bill. It's called the Energy Security Act of 2011, and would help keep America's focus on reducing our dependence on foreign oil. “America’s addiction to foreign oil is a severe threat looming over our nation's economic and national security and that threat is growing larger every year. By continuing to place our energy security in the hands of nations that don't have our best interests in mind, we leave American families and businesses vulnerable to spikes in gas prices and a severing of the national fuel supply.” This legislation would create a National Energy Security Council that would report directly to the President.
