Generally, yes. In theory there could be a specific right or power in a Power of Attorney which is legal in CA but illegal in another state and that specific right or power would not then be effective but it wouldn't make the whole POA void. I can't think of an example of this since power of attorneys are usually general in nature but in theory it could happen.
