HARTFORD — – Alarmed by a potentially costly delay in the plan to land millions of federal dollars for high-speed rail service, House Speaker Christopher Donovan has asked Gov. M. Jodi Rell to speed up her share of the work.

Rell’s office and the state Department of Transportation maintained that the delay — a monthlong postponement in an authorization to borrow money — isn’t a serious concern.

But Donovan and U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd, a high-profile sponsor of the Springfield-to- New Haven project, both asked Rell Thursday to get the financing back on track.
