Gov. M. Jodi Rell is set to call today for one of the state’s biggest bond issues in recent memory when she proposes selling $260 million in bonds to make improvements to the New Haven-to-Springfield rail line.

The money is intended to attract an additional $220 million in federal aid to begin building a high-speed train line linking Springfield and Hartford to Amtrak’s busy Boston-to-Washington route along the shoreline.
