Congresswoman Martha McSally added a runway improvement for Tucson International to the defense budget for 2019.

The extension will give National Guard F-16's a parallel runway to take off and land.

TIA is home to one of the largest F-16 training units in the country.

The money will also provide more land for Raytheon to store munitions.
