Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — President Obama will be joined by Gabrielle Giffords in the Oval Office Friday when he signs the Arizona representative’s last piece of legislation.

The Ultralight Aircraft Smuggling Prevention Act of 2012, which gives law enforcement broader authority to counter illicit drug trafficking on U.S. borders, was the last bill that Giffords sponsored in the House.

Giffords, who is retiring to focus on her ongoing recovery from last year’s assassination attempt in Tucson, Ariz., will be joined by her husband retired astronaut Mark Kelly. Vice President Joe Biden will also attend the signing.
