King Fahd has called for the "streamlining" of fatwas:

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd yesterday called on Islamic scholars to counter extremism and misguided religious edicts by correcting Islamic thinking and streamlining fatwas.

In a written message to the opening session of a conference of the Islamic Fiqh Academy in Makkah, the king said scholars must “highlight the dangers which extremism poses to Muslim faith and conduct,” the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Islamic scholars must join hands to “correct the flaws in the thinking of some Muslims through dialogue in seminars, conferences and via the media,” said the king in the message, which was read out by Makkah Deputy Governor Abdullah ibn Dawood Al-Faiz.
