Sens. Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer and Ron Wyden are urging the Labor Department to do "everything possible" to expedite unemployment benefits.

The senators wrote a letter detailing the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic and asking how the department plans to assist the 3.3 million Americans who filed for unemployment last week.

They say they want answers from the Labor Department before April 3.
