A year ago, students voted to expand health and dental coverage. A year later, the Students' Union has done nothing.

"It's pretty clear to me that people don't want [the changes] right now because of increased cost," said SU Vice-president Operations and Finance Matt Lauzon. "The increase in cost would be substantial, so that's not going to happen right away."
